The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice provides two programs of study leading to bachelor degrees: the Bachelor of Science in Sociology and the Bachelor of Criminal Justice. The Department offers minors in anthropology, sociology, criminal justice and juvenile justice. In collaboration with other units in the College, the Department participates actively in the interdivisional Master’s of Applied Social Sciences program. In all our programs, students’ growth and development are our first priority, and we endeavor to provide a first-rate education for each student. A total of 120 semester credit hours are required for a baccalaureate degree-60 lower level credit hours and 60 upper level credit hours. Students are encouraged to master the skills essential for their chosen profession and to become productive, thoughtful and ethical citizens.
