THE DEPARTMENT: The sociology and criminology department provides students with the conceptual and research skills to investigate and understand a variety of social experiences, from our everyday behaviors and interactions with friends and family to large-scale social institutions like economies, governments, and religions. Our majors learn to think critically and conduct research professionally. The department offers two majors, sociology and criminology. Both majors have the same central focus—the perspective of social structure and social processes—and receive the same grounding in statistics, research, and theory. The criminology major prepares students to apply their knowledge and skills to the specific social institutions related to crime and punishment.
