Sociology Advising

Coming Spring 2021!

Our Dean, Dr. Sarah Beth Estes, is also a Sociologist! She will be teaching  ST: Jobs and Your Future SOCI 4302-9S0 on Tuesdays 1:40-2:55.

In this course we will look at the changing nature of work, investigating factors that influence large scale changes in how humans experience paid employment.  Students will become familiar with the contemporary tools analysts use to make recommendations for and predictions about paid employment, will learn about economic and workforce planning in central Arkansas, and will investigate perspectives on paid employment and quality of life.  By the end of the course, students will understand the challenges and opportunities in the changing job market of the future, how employment opportunities in our region are developed, and will have created a career portfolio for use in employment searches.

Advising Information

Main Campus Sociology Majors

If you are a currently enrolled Sociology major, your advising will be initiated by the department. At least a week ahead of the official start to early registration, you will receive an email from one of the Sociology faculty members with your advising information.  After you have reviewed the advising form sent to you, further discussion may occur with your advisor by email, video chat, or phone if needed.  Please contact the person who advised you as that person will best understand your record. You must acknowledge you received the advising form and agree with it before we can lift your advising flag and give overrides.  You can register once registration opens and all of your flags are cleared.

If the registration period has already begun, and you have not received advising information from us, first check your UA Little Rock email and search for an advising email.  If you cannot find an advising email, email SOAN-L@ualr.edu from your ualr.edu account and we will take care of you. You may also call the department at 501-569-3173.
