The Department of Sociology, Social Work and Criminal Justice offers a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology; Bachelor of Science in Social Work; and Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and three minors in Sociology, Social Work, and Criminal Justice.

The 24-credit minor in Criminal Justice emphasizes the knowledge and skills necessary for students to think critically and to develop beginning skills in the criminal justice field.  The goal of the Criminal Justice Administration program is to provide students with the educational background necessary to pursue careers in Criminal Justice, and/or to pursue graduate study in criminology, criminal justice, law, or other related fields.  The Criminal Justice minor not only complements the Sociology and Social Work majors offered in the department, but also many other majors across various related professional fields and disciplines.
