We believe that the undergraduate training we provide ranks among the best. As part of a small school, we have a tradition of close collaboration between faculty and students. Through our Internship program we maintain relationships with several local institutions and agencies - a unique feature that offers students the opportunity to work with professionals in the field, in an area that interests them. In addition to academic learning, students get experience, develop professional contacts, and come to understand their chosen field. Our graduates are prepared for a variety of professions, and a high percentage have jobs when they graduate.
What is Sociology? It is the study of human social life, groups and societies. The Sociologists' job is to uncover hidden realities. They systematically study various social situation to understand and explain them. Patterns of activity, or social structure, is one thing that sociologists study. Sociologists also study beliefs and values in modern culture. The person interested in Criminal Justice studies patterns of criminal activity and its related consequences.
We have lots of plans for developing our program in the future. Be sure to drop by and talk with us, about your plans, or about our plans. Every other Thursday during the Fall and Spring semesters we meet with other Sociologists or other Criminal Justice professionals. Visitors are welcome.
