Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work
|Text Only Version||
The Criminology minor examines the nature of criminal law, the causes and consequences of criminal behavior, and societal responses to
crime and offenders. The influence of social inequality and diversity on crime-related issues is also highlighted. Students with career
interests in both adult and juvenile systems-including law enforcement, court systems, and corrections-as well as those wishing to pursue
graduate or law degrees, will find the Criminology minor an excellent base.
*Note that there are several courses the department offers under Sociology 365. In order to fulfill the minor requirement, the topic must be crime focused. If you are unsure if the course will fulfill the requirment, contact Dr. Severance or Dr. Lugo.
Other courses may be considered for equivalency or substitution for any of the above courses with the permission of the Coordinator of the Criminology minor.
