Our faculty is well trained in many areas within sociology and criminal justice from some of the most prestigious graduate schools within the nation. Several of our faculty members have either been employed in areas where applied research occurred or within criminal justice agencies, so they bring practical experience to the classroom. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in your educational endeavor. Our classes are small enough for students and professor to become professionally acquainted. They are large enough so that students experience and obtain an education that is diverse and global in its presentation. The department’s overall endeavor is to prepare our students to become engaged, dedicated professional citizens, who are equipped to take on the challenges of a changing and dynamic society and world.
*The BS/BA in Sociology with emphasis in Criminology will no longer be offered after 2014.
