The Sociology & Criminology department trains students to empirically examine human behavior and social interaction in order help recognize and understand how other individuals, groups, institutions, and international circumstances influence how people think, act, and behave. Faculty members in Sociology & Criminology are scholars interested in a wide range of sociological issues including race, education, health, sport, gender, law, religion, politics, and social movements. Together with collaborative student-faculty research projects and real-life experiences through internships and community-engaged classes, the department of Sociology & Criminology produces impactful scholarship and provides an excellent foundation for students interested in pursuing various careers, including teaching, law enforcement, counseling, activism, and social work.
