Welcome to the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago! Students may enter the program at any time upon completion of any social sciences core sequence but no later than the enrollment period of spring quarter in their third year.

Before declaring the major, students should 1) review all the relevant material posted on our website and 2) discuss their plans with their College adviser. Step 3 is to complete the online enrollment form, available here. (This includes a short entry survey and should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete). 4) Make sure you subscribe to our listserv, which is jointly maintained by the Director of Undergraduate Studies and the Department Secretary. Rest assured: We use our listserv judiciously, to communicate important deadlines and research opportunities; this means no cat photos and no chain letters.
