About the Programs
Criminology, law, public health, social services, human resource management, consumer protection, marketing, education, urban planning, journalism, and research analyst are some of the careers available to students who graduate with a degree from the Department of Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology.
The department offers several majors and minors that build upon the discipline of sociology, including anthropology, criminology, family and health studies, global comparative studies, Asian studies and forensic science. An honors curriculum is also available.
Students will learn from faculty members who are widely published and have national and international reputations in their areas of expertise. These faculty members are actively engaged in research on contemporary issues and are committed to solving real-world problems and promoting multicultural understanding.
A variety of professional development opportunities exist for students in the sociology, criminology and anthropology program. Students can collaborate with faculty members on research and journal articles, and they may pursue projects in the forensics laboratory. Internships, service-learning and international travel opportunities are also available.
Students are encouraged to join the Student Sociology and Anthropology Association. Those students with 3.0 grade point averages may also be eligible for membership in the Alpha Kappa Delta international sociology honor society.
