Department of Sociology and Anthropology Resources
It is much easier to complete a double major than you might imagine! A double major can be completed without any additional credits beyond what is required for your Bachelor of Science degree. It looks especially distinctive on your résumé and gives you that extra edge. It shows your well-roundedness, flexibility, and openness.
You can double-count many courses towards both majors. For example, we can typically double-count a Senior Thesis, internship or co-op, some technical courses, and courses of related content.
Contact the department chair, Prof. Uli Linke (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your goals and see if a double major works for you.
RIT's Saunders College of Business and the Sociology and Anthropology department in the College of Liberal Arts have negotiated a 4+1 BS/MBA option that would permit qualified students who have earned a BS degree in International & Global Studies or Sociology and Anthropology to accelerate their progress through the Saunders College of Business MBA program. Waiver of selected MBA courses may be granted, based upon completion of certain undergraduate courses. Students are typically able to complete the MBA program in two to three semesters, depending on desired course load.
Undergraduate students majoring in Sociology & Anthropology are eligible for an accelerated course of study in the MS Science, Technology & Public Policy program. Students may waive up to six graduate level foundation courses by declaring a Minor in Public Policy, completing both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a total of five years.
