The sociology minor provides students with a distinctive social perspective on the realities of everyday life and the relationships within societies, institutions, organizations, and groups.

Students are introduced to methods of social science research and the social, cultural, and political dimensions of domestic and global issues. Students are also exposed to the interstices between sociology and other social and behavioral sciences.

  • Sociology Minor

    Students pursuing a sociology minor explore the enduring social patterns that characterize societies around the world. Many Criminal Justice majors pursue the sociology minor, as it complements their required studies. However, minors come from programs as diverse as architecture, nursing and studies in war and peace.

    Required courses help participants examine and analyze both American and international societies. Students following this option typically have a strong curiosity about why different groups of people behave in particular ways. Requirements include four required and two elective courses. For details, see the course catalog.
