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 Social Work emphasizes the knowledge and skills necessary for students to think critically and to develop beginning helping skills.  The goal of the Social Work program is to provide students the educational background necessary for competent generalist social work practice in a range of human service settings and/or to pursue graduate study in social work or related disciplines. 

The Social Work minor not only complements the Sociology and Criminal Justice majors offered in the department, but also many other majors across various professional helping fields and disciplines in the behavioral, social and health sciences.
