Major in Sociology of Public Service – Students interested in working in the non-profit
sector, government, health care, education, or human resources may participate in a joint, five-year
program leading to a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a master’s degree in Public Administration
from the University of New Orleans.  Students earn 102 credit hours at Xavier and then pursue
graduate study during their senior year.  Upon successful completion of 26 hours of graduate
coursework, the student earns a B.A. degree from Xavier.  Students are responsible for admission
to and financing of the graduate program.  Students not accepted may continue in the B.A.
Program in Sociology.  Students should communicate their interest to the Chairperson by fall
of their sophomore year and should maintain close communication with their academic advisor. 
Participation is contingent on acceptance to the program by the University of New Orleans in the
