Distinction Policy

Departmental Policy for Awarding “With Distinction” Designation to Graduating Sociology Majors 

Students graduating with the baccalaureate who are judged by their departments to have made outstanding contributions to their disciplines graduate “with distinction.” The Department of Sociology awards distinction for academic excellence within the discipline or extraordinary contributions to the department, university, or community. Departmental honors are noted on the student’s transcript and on the diploma.
