Off-campus Study Options

With prior departmental approval, students can take courses in sociology as participants in Reed off-campus programs. However, be advised that a surprising number of courses offered under the rubric of sociology at other institutions are not comparable to sociology courses taught at Reed, will not prepare students for upper division work in the major, and will not satisfy major, divisional or group requirements. Be advised also that approval requires a syllabus and reading list, not just a course description.
