Sociology and Criminology

Department of Sociology and Criminology Advising 

Are you still looking for courses for Spring 2021? Here is a selected list of courses with seats followed by a description of some of the courses

Dear Advisee:

I hope that Fall 2020 is going as well for you as can be expected, and that you are enjoying your classes.

Fall registration begins on November 10th.

As many of you already know, the Sociology & Criminology department uses an online Academic Advising Portal in UNCW’s Canvas learning management system. You must request your personal PIN number for registration using this online portal.  This “course” has enabled open enrollment. If you used this online portal last year, the course should already be on you Canvas dashboard ( If you are new to the major, you can self-enroll in the online academic advising course with this URL: Once you log in to Canvas with your UNCW credentials, you will enroll yourself in the course titled, “Academic Advising – Dept. of Sociology and Criminology.”  You will use this portal to access advising information. You may also use this portal for general information about policies and procedures about the sociology and criminology majors and concentrations.

You will need to follow a few easy steps to request your PIN number online, including watching a brief video on “Completing the Sociology or Criminology Major,” and a brief survey indicating that you understood the video and to request your PIN number to register for courses.

You will receive your PIN number upon completion of these steps (within three business days).

Once you have received this PIN, you will be prepared to access SeaNet and to register for your classes online. Please note that you may still make an individual appointment with your assigned advisor should you have specific questions AFTER you have received your PIN electronically.

Note: If you are a double major, and neither CRM nor SOC is your primary major, you will need to obtain your PIN from your primary major advisor.
