Sociology involves the study of how human behavior is shaped by the groups people belong to and interact with. Intertwined with sociology, our criminal justice program is an interdisciplinary course of study designed to provide students with an understanding of the key components of the current criminal justice system in the United States. In both sociology and criminal justice courses of study, in-class assignments, research projects, internships and community service activities offer students opportunities to apply their knowledge and experiences to practical social issues and future careers.
