Sociology is the systematic study of human group behavior. It seeks to understand the processes by which people build, maintain, and change their relations with others. Sociology emerged in response to the problems and needs of industrial life. As society has grown in size and complexity so has the need for knowledge and skill in dealing with human relationships. Providing students with the intellectual tools appropriate to the study and understanding of the basic human condition is our central concern. Topics studied include marriage and family, crime and delinquency, gender roles, race and ethnic relations, social problems, and bureaucracy. Cross-cultural offerings focus on developing countries.

The Department of Sociology at UW-Whitewater offers courses covering a wide range of interests and specialties. The program is designed to give the student a better understanding of the significant factors and processes of modern life; to meet the needs of students preparing to teach in the social science field; to prepare students for graduate work in sociology; and to provide study useful for particular applied fields. Many students regard sociology as especially valuable preparation for careers in social work, teaching, law, and research and administration in government or corporations. Faculty work closely with students in developing programs, career plans and opportunities. They assist students in selecting an appropriate on-the-job practicum experience to make the transition to a professional job on graduation. Assistance extends to preparing for the job search and exploring the practical applications of sociology.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Ron Berger, Coordinator

The Criminal Justice Minor is an interdisciplinary field of study that integrates career-development goals with a liberal arts curriculum. The Minor consists primarily of social and behavioral science courses that will enhance students' understanding of the nature and causes of criminal and delinquent behavior and the operation of the criminal justice system in the United States. It will help prepare students to pursue careers in law enforcement (local, state, and federal), adult and juvenile probation and parole, correctional counseling and group home work, private security, and criminal justice research.
