Criminology Minor

The Criminology minor allows students from other disciplines to gain a foundation in criminological research and an introduction to evidence-based interpretations of contemporary issues regarding crime.

The Department of Sociology requires six courses for the minor:

SOC 202 Research Methods
SOC 205 Sociology of Crimes
SOC 317 Criminology
Three additional criminology electives.
The course distribution allows students to minor in sociology with a concentration in one of the three tracks.
