If you have questions regarding your LSA distribution requirements, college policies, or your overall academic standing, you should meet with your general academic advisor (LSA Newnan, RC, CSP, Honors). For graduate school and career advising, connect with the LSA Opportunity Hub or Career Center

Advising via Email

The undergraduate program staff will respond to advising questions via email at socadvisor@umich.edu

Declaring in Sociology

Students must complete a prerequisite course in Sociology with a C- grade or better to declare a major or minor. The following courses are eligible to fulfill this requirement: SOC 100, 102, 300, or 302.

Schedule an advising appointment or email us to declare or inquire about our programs!

Note that students should only take ONE prerequisite course (SOC 100, 102, 300, or 302); no credit will be granted for the second prerequisite course taken (the second course will have a “Not For Credit” designation on the transcript).

If you need to take courses reserved for majors like SOC 305 and SOC 310, please plan ahead.
