Preparing students to use the sociological perspective to critically examine the social world, and their position in it, at the individual, cultural, societal and global levels
The sociology program prepares students to use the sociological perspective to critically examine the social world, and their position in it, at the individual, cultural, societal and global levels. The criminal justice program provides students with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to operate effectively in professional positions within the justice system.
Sociology is the scientific study of human behavior. In sociology, the student will focus on societal structures and how they influence and shape human behavior. Classes in sociology provide the student with a wide range of behavioral topics to explore. Some are family and marriage, race, gender, social class, deviant behavior, technology and environment, and sexuality.
Many police officers, corrections and other human services workers are able to convert their on-the-job work experiences, police academy hours, and professional in-service certificates to credit toward their degree through experiential learning credit-portfolio development. Students generally develop a personal portfolio to document their evidence for having gained knowledge in specific areas prior to entry into our programs. The sociology and criminal justice degree programs require a G.P.A. of 2.5 in the major core courses.
