  • Sociology & Criminal Justice

    The Sociology and Criminal Justice Department offers programs in sociology, criminal justice and gerontology that cover an array of topics related to the study of society, the criminal justice system and human aging. 

    Dedicated faculty are highly accessible to students and have received awards and other recognition for their teaching, research and academic service. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research projects and present their work at local and regional academic conferences. Students are also highly active outside the classroom through the Criminal Justice Association, Sociology Club and Alpha Kappa Delta International Sociology Honor Society, which provide unique forums to discuss topics related to their study and participate in student group events. Graduates are well prepared to pursue graduate school or careers in their chosen field.
