How to Declare your Sociology Major/Minor

To declare your major or minor in Sociology, you will need to:

  1. Print an unofficial transcript. To do so:
    • Log in to PAWS
    • Under the yellow Academics header, click in the drop down menu and select Transcript: View Unofficial, then click the yellow arrow button
    • Select the Undergraduate or Graduate Transcript and default Output Destination Type (email), then click the Submit Transcript Request button
    • A PDF copy will be delivered to your UWM Email Address immediately
  2. Pick up an Information for the Prospective Sociology Major packet or a Minor Information sheet in the Department Office, Bolton Hall, Rm. 714.
  3. Meet with one of the Sociology Undergraduate Faculty Advisors (see list below) during their walk-in office hours to sign-up and determine your course plan. If you cannot attend walk-in advising hours, please contact one of the advisors by phone or e-mail to arrange an appointment. Please bring your unofficial transcript with you.
