Campus Activity

With more than 20 faculty and 600 majors, we're among the largest and most active departments on campus. We offer undergraduate degrees in sociology and criminal justice, a master's degree in Sociology and five minors.


Sociology and Criminal Justice

Our classes offer faculty-student ratios that allow students' interests to be addressed through interaction with professors. We emphasize critical and analytical skills and effective communication to resolve conflicts and promote social justice.

The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice emphasizes an interdisciplinary understanding of socio-economic, cultural, institutional and physical environments. Our programs prepare students for citizenship by encouraging them to understand, tolerate and respect the vast array of cultural and intellectual differences found throughout the world.
