Sociology and criminal justice programs

As a sociology/criminal justice major, you’ll study people in groups: peer and family groups, political parties, religious groups, minority groups, and entire societies. You’ll investigate and debate social problems like poverty, war and crime—all in an effort to understand how people might relate to one another in a way that promotes restoration and reconciliation.

Our department's mission is to train you to think critically about the social world, help you develop skills for conducting social research, and engage you in exploring the diversity of the human experience. We want our sociology graduates to apply their skills to the pursuit of justice as they live out their calling in careers and communities around the world.
