Dive deep into our society; the issues, the challenges, the directions.

When you study in the Sociology, Anthropology, Crime & Delinquency department, you become part of the conversation for social change. We offer both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Crime and Delinquency Studies. We also offer minors in both areas and Anthropology. In addition, sociology majors may choose a concentration in Child Maltreatment and Family Violence. CDS majors may choose a concentration in Correctional Services (BS students only). The faculty are committed teachers and scholars who work closely with students to support their academic development and career trajectories. Undergraduates have the opportunity to choose areas of concentration designed to their personal and professional interests and needs. Internship placements earn students course credit, invaluable professional skills and provide excellent networking opportunities for future employment.
