Program Overview

The sociology–criminology major is designed for students who desire careers in some aspect of criminal justice or who are planning to seek graduate degrees in an area related to the criminal justice system, yet who wish to receive a broad liberal arts education at the same time. Students completing the program receive a degree in sociology with the specialty in criminology listed on the transcript. Thus, requirements include many courses required of all sociology majors, as well as more specialized courses in criminology and criminal justice. Some courses outside of sociology are also included, giving the program an interdisciplinary focus.
