The "typical" entering grad should take 700 (a 1 credit proseminar involving class attendance only & no outside reading), 773 (intermediate theory), a statistics course (360, 361, or 362 depending on background), and some course in an area of interest to you. If you have prior graduate training or are otherwise atypical, consult with the graduate advisor. Courses numbered 300-699 are grouped by subject area, not by difficulty level. Both grads and undergrads can enroll in 300-699 courses, but specific courses vary in their appropriateness for sociology grads. In all cases, it is appropriate to consult by email with the instructor to determine whether a particular course fits your needs and background. If you have previously had an undergraduate (or graduate) sociology course in the topic area, you should determine whether this course overlaps with what you have already had. Courses numbered 700-900 are only for graduate students. Most are appropriate for entering students, although some assume an undergraduate background in the topic. Some 900-level seminars require prior graduate-level work in the area, but others are open to entering students; see the notes below and consult with the instructor if you have questions. You should already have received email notification about your correct placement in the statistics sequence (360, 361, 362). Graduate students MAY NOT take courses numbered 100-299.

Training Seminars: New grads are welcome in training seminars. 875 (social/aquatic systems) 983 (economic), 984 (gender), 985 (STARE-science, technology, agriculture, environment), 987 (race & ethnic), 988 (deviance, law, social control), 991 (social psychology), 992 (politics, culture & society), 993 (SEC, soc of economic change), 994 (critical sociology), 995 (methodology), and 997 (demography) are "training seminars" or "brownbags" which are different from what we call "real seminars" or "regular seminars." The format of a training seminar involves a presentation by a student or professor, followed by informal discussion about the presentation. There is usually no outside work except, sometimes, reading the paper to be presented in advance of the presentation. You may generally attend training seminar sessions without being registered for them. For administrative reasons, it is helpful to have some students officially registered in each training seminar, so if you will be attending one regularly, we may ask you to register for it for 1 credit (for which you will get a S "satisfactory" grade which is not factored into your GPA). No entering student should register for 2 or 3 credits for such a seminar; this is a special option which requires special explanation. Demography trainees are required to register for 997; environmental sociology (IGERT) trainees are required to register for 875 (sem 2).

If a class is closed: courses open to undergraduates may be closed, as continuing students pre-registered some time ago. Many faculty are willing to add a few graduate students. Consult with the graduate advisor and the instructor if you wish to take a closed course.
