Sociology New Major Advising
Sociology does not have walk-in advising. Visit our Advising Webpage to learn more about declaring a major or minor.
CLAS (College of Liberal Arts and Sciences), 2nd FL in Fretwell, will do advising for:
- GEN ED (General Education) questions
- Transient Study questions
- Academic Policy
Please Note: CLAS advising will not advise regarding any topic, question, concern directly relating to the Sociology major or minor. Please check with the CLAS Advising Center for their scheduled hours.
All existing Sociology Majors will schedule advising appointments through Connect. You will find the link to Connect on My UNCC. If your advisor does not appear in your Connect list, you will find your advisor listed on our People page where you have the ability to send a direct email.
If you feel that you do not need an advising appointment, general questions can be answered by department staff. However, the staff are not authorized to provide official academic advice.
Contact our department using the Contact Us form or call (704) 687-7806 between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
