Sociology is a broad discipline that includes the study of human interaction as well as the analysis of underlying social structure. Thus sociology students study social human behavior, in particular, the way people interact, organize, and take action. The discipline provides students with a strong analytical and theoretical background and skills to work with and understand people. The substantive areas covered within the Sociology and Criminology Department include aging, anthropology, crime and deviance, cultural diversity, the environment, the family, health and illness, human service/social justice, poverty and social inequality, prejudice and discrimination, and sex and gender. The Department of Sociology and Criminology offers regular course work in all of these areas.
Many students participate in internships in nonprofit and governmental agencies. Graduates have gone into many careers: law and criminal justice, social work and counseling, public health and non-profit administration, education and business, as well as sociology and anthropology.
