Resources for Sociology Students

Sociology majors will meet with our sociology advisor, Dr. Virginia D’Antonio,, before registering for courses each semester.

Students can also view their online student profile in Degree Works through UNA Portal. Degree Works can help you customize your coursework plans and can also analyze and compare alternative plans that would work for your sociology degree. Your advisor will also assist with this during your regular advising meetings.

  1. Students can find access to many planning resources, including their current class schedule and the course registration tool, by logging into UNA Portal. (UNA Portal also includes access to other resources, like your UNA email, unofficial transcripts, and final grades.)
