Honors Tutorial College Sociology Program

The Sociology program supports an Honors Tutorial degree offered through Ohio University's 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. Students interested should contact the Honors Tutorial College directly for additional information.
