Declare a Major/Minor

How to Declare a Major in SOAN

If you'd like to declare Sociology or Anthropology as your major, the process is fairly simple. If you haven't yet applied to George Mason, simply select your degree of choice during the application process. If you're already a student but want to become a sociology or anthropology major, follow these steps:

  • First, print and fill out the Change/Declaration of Academic Program form.
  • Then, have it signed by the SOAN department at Robinson Hall B, Room 305.
  • Finally, submit the completed form to the Registrar's Office, located in SUB I, Room 2101 

Students interested in either Sociology or Anthropology are encouraged to stop by during office hours to meet with an advisor and complete the paperwork.

How to Declare a Minor in SOAN

If you've already declared your major in another department but would still like to minor in sociology, anthropology, or immigration studies, the process is basically the same.

  • First, print and fill out the Undergraduate Minor Declaration form.
  • Then, have it signed by the SOAN department, located at Robinson Hall B, Room 305.
  • Finally, submit the completed form to the Registrar's Office at SUB I, Room 2101.

Students who complete all of the requirements for their chosen minor will be conferred the minor upon graduation. See the requirements for sociology minors, anthropology minors, and immigration studies minors.
