Advising

Dear Sociology and Cultural Anthropology majors-

It is nearly time to register for fall 2014 classes. Once again, the Undergraduate Advising Team has developed a resource to help you select courses for the coming term. The Fall 2014 Registration Guide organizes course offerings from around the campus (both within and outside of the department) into content areas that would most likely be of interest to you. Using the guide, you can tailor your selections toward the in-depth study of a number of social issues with the confidence that these particular selections will meet one or more requirement within your curriculum.

The Guide for Fall 2014 course selections has been organized into the following general categories: cities and communities; crime, conflict & deviance; environment and health; gender, sexuality & the family; race, ethnic and class inequality; social change and globalization; and for the first time – technology and society, the individual and society and organizations. For each course listed we have indicated what area of the Sociology or Anthropology curriculum the course will fulfill. Courses that appear in italics come from departments whose courses we do not typically accept credit from, but which have been judged as acceptable substitutions for social science elective credit for Sociology majors for Spring 2014.

As you review the lists, please keep in mind that some courses may fit into more than one category and that the lists ore not exhaustive – there may be courses offered in other social science departments that are acceptable to take as electives, but do not fit into these categories. Therefore, you should still review the class schedule on banner thoroughly.

If you have additional questions, we invite you to stop by our office hours. This year, we are offering EXPANDED advising hours to meet your needs prior to registration during the week of March 31. You may visit any of the faculty listed below (as indicated) to pose questions about course selections. You do not need an appointment, but if you contact our office at sociology@neu.edu or anthropology@neu.edu in advance, we will make extra certain that the faculty are prepared for your arrival. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, we will also offer advising after hours that will be provided by our peer mentoring team. Those times are also listed below.

As you approach registration and the end of the term, we wish you the best of luck!

Sincerely,

Your Advising Team
