Sociology teaching minors must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75 in sociology courses. They must also earn a grade of C or better in SOC 1010 and a grade of C or better in all courses to be counted toward the teaching minor. At least 50 percent of coursework for the minor must be completed at USU. A teaching minor requires completion of a teaching license in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services. Sociology courses over 10 years old, do not count toward the major credit requirement.
Finally, students need to fulfill the 35-credit requirement for the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) in the Secondary Education Program of the School of Teacher Education and Leadership.
This program typically leads to licensure and was designed to meet licensing qualifications in the state of Utah. If students wish to work in another state within the United States, they should review the qualifications for that state and the Education Licensure Compliance Table provided by School of Teacher Education and Leadership.
