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.
