Every sociology student is assigned an academic advisor within the major. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors regularly to discuss course sequencing and career plans and to ensure that all requirements in the general education and sociology programs are being met.

The hallmark of the PLU Sociology program is our research-oriented cumulative curriculum. Our curriculum is designed intentionally and sequentially to encourage students to develop their research and writing skills step-by-step. This means that students should complete lower-division courses before enrolling in upper-division courses, since the more advanced courses require students to have already developed those lower division skills. Whether you are completing your major in four years or two, the advising plan includes recommended course sequencing.
