Department of Sociology at Lehman College

Sociology Advisors

We are invested in the success of our new and continuing students who are majoring or minoring in Sociology. Below you will find contact information for Sociology advising. For more general advising, including help with LEH course selection, General Education requirements and reaching the required 120 credits for graduation, please contact an Academic Advisor. Note that Sociology advisors are not able to answer questions about financial aid, nor are they able to remove holds on enrollment, which typically are placed by the Bursar, the Registrar or Financial Aid. Please visit the virtual office hours page to contact the appropriate office.

Prior to meeting with an advisor, you may wish to:

  • Watch this brief video on major requirements
  • If you declared your major prior to February 2015, your major requirements may differ from the current ones. A Sociology advisor will be able to ensure that you understand your major requirements, which are based on the date that you declared the major.
  • Download our major and minor checklists
  • View a listing of all Sociology courses in the course catalog
    * Please note that multiple sections of the 5 core courses are offered every semester, but some listed courses are offered only occasionally. Check the offerings for the upcoming semester in CUNYFirst

Fall 2020 Sociology Advising & Student Hours
(Full-Time Faculty)

If you have already consulted with one of the sociology advisors below, or have/had them as a professor and are more comfortable contacting them than someone you don't know, you should email them about general sociology advice.

Otherwise, contact the professor assigned to monitor the first letter of your last name. Please provide your EMPLID when you email. These student hours (formerly known as office hours) are for Sociology advisement about the major, discussions of course content (if you are a student in one of their courses) or other matters, such as career or graduate-school possibilities. Only professors with *** can help you with overtallies into closed courses during enrollment periods. Susan Dumais is the primary major advisor for more complex advising issues.
