Dear SOCY Majors,
On behalf of the Undergraduate Program in Sociology, we are writing to update you on what to expect regarding SOCY 300 and SOCY 301.
In order to enroll in SOCY 301, students are required to 1) pass SOCY 300, and 2) take the Statistical Readiness Quiz (SRE, see updated temporary policy below).
1) SOCY 300:
Permissions for SOCY 301 will be issued for everyone *after* you receive a passing grade in SOCY 300. Students do not need to worry about there being a lack of space in SOCY 301, the Sociology program is aware of exactly how many students are moving through 300 and 301 and we have spaces reserved and waiting for you after you receive a passing grade in SOCY 300. Your advisers cannot issue an early permission and the SOCY 301 instructor cannot issue this permission. This will be done for the group as a whole over winter for Spring 2018.
For those planning to take SOCY 301 in Spring 2018, there is a temporary policy change regarding the SRE. Just as before, all students are required to take the SRE but unlike before, the SRE will be online and students are NOT required to pass the SRE. This change is designed to allow students to become aware of the gaps in their knowledge and take time on their own to review those skills prior to taking 301. If you have any questions about this, please contact your SOCY 300 instructor (if you are currently in SOCY 300) or Amy Barnes, our Administrative Assistant (firstname.lastname@example.org; 5-3979).
Thank you for your patience as we explore the best options for students moving through these sequences!
