CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN SOCIOLOGY IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000, OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN


On page 259, in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN I," subsection "MAJORS AND MINORS," make the following changes:


Sociology

Major: At least twenty-four semester hours of sociology, including Sociology 302, 317L, [and] 317M [or the equivalent], and 379M. At least twelve hours must be in upper-division courses.

Minor for sociology majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. Six of the required hours must be taken in residence.


Rationale:
The course number for Introduction to Social Research was changed from SOC 317K to 317M to reflect the proper course sequence with SOC 317L, the course prerequisite. This is the only recognized "equivalent" that would count towards this requirement, and SOC 317K is not listed in any current Catalogs that students are eligible to use.
