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.
