To declare a Sociology (SOCI) Major: Visit www.declare.clas.uconn.edu, log in with your NetID, and then follow the instructions to declare a major.

To declare Sociology (SOCI) as a 2nd Major: For those students already in CLAS, the process of declaring a double major is simple. First, fill out the Double Major Form. Then see either Kathryn Upson in Manchester Hall 112 or Katherine Covey in Manchester Hall 114 for departmental signature. You will also need to obtain signatures from your primary major and the CLAS Academic Services Center.

After declaring the Sociology (SOCI) major: You will need to meet with Kathryn Upson, Sociology Academic Advisor, for an initial advising appointment to review the program requirements and answer any questions you may have. After this meeting, you will be assigned a faculty advisor. If you want to request a particular faculty member as an advisor, you may do so.

You may meet with your faculty advisor or Kathryn Upson for any advising appointments.

To make an appointment with your faculty advisor – email them.

To make an appointment with Kathryn Upson, please go to sandbox.uconn.edu and select “Sociology”.
