Sociology Honors Tutorial Program
The Sociology Program has an established Honors Tutorial degree offered
through Ohio University's nationally unique Honors Tutorial College. It
extends an Oxford-style education to gifted students, in which many courses
in that student's area of specialization are taught in a tutorial fashion.
This means the student and faculty member meet for individualized learning
through direct discussion, covering far more breadth and depth of subject
matter than is possible in standard courses. The Honors Tutorial College requires entering students to be in the upper 10% of their high school
class, have a G.P.A. of 3.5 or above, and have a combined SAT score of
at least 1300 or an ACT of 30. Students interested should contact the Honors Tutorial College directly for
