SOST 200 Interpreting Southern Cultures 3:25 MW.  [This new title for SOST 200, formerly called Intro to Southern Studies, better reflects the open-ended inquiry of the class and the fact that it is often taken after students have already taken one or more Southern Studies courses.]


The Southern Studies Minor currently requires 19 credit hours that include SOST 200 or the equivalent, 15 hours of elective courses, and SOST 400, 1 credit hour. Beginning with the 2023-24 catalog year, the minor will only require 18 credit hours and SOST 400 will be deleted from the catalog. For the minor’s capstone project, instead of taking SOST 400, students will consult with the Program Director to select an interdisciplinary project completed in one of their minor courses. They may also do a new capstone project while enrolled in SOST 399 or SOST 404 for 1-3 hours and count those hours towards their elective hours. The Southern Studies program will share capstone projects publicly, since this work adds to our collective understanding of the complexity of our region and how its cultures can become more equitable and sustainable.

If students wish to do focused research on a Southern Studies topic not covered in a regular course, they may count tutorials or independent studies in an appropriate department, including SOST 399 and SOST 404, two new courses added to the 23-24 catalog.

Students who are completing the minor under an earlier catalog but graduating in December 2023 or later may switch to the requirements of the new minor. Go to MyPortal and select POSM (Program of Study Management) to switch to a later catalog. Contact the Program Director, Dr. Julia Eichelberger eichelbergerj@cofc.edu to discuss your options.
