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 above requirements apply only to non-Sociology majors. Students majoring in sociology need to take four interdisciplinary electives from outside the department.
