The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice provides students with classroom and real-life experiences designed to stimulate critical thought about the social environment as they prepare for meaningful participation in society.
The Department offers both a major and an academic concentration in Sociology and a major in Criminal Justice. In addition, minors are available in Sociology, Criminal Justice, Substance Abuse, Medical Sociology, and Community Development.
The Department places emphasis on applied sociology and criminal justice. Many courses within the department allow students to test classroom learning through real-life experience in the community. In addition to providing a rewarding learning opportunity, these experiences enhance employment opportunities following graduation.
The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice strongly recommends that prospective majors, minors, and those developing specialty concentrations consult the Department Chair or an advisor.
