There are three specialized tracks in which sociology majors or minors may concentrate:
- The Criminology Track
The criminology track is recommended for students interested in crime, forensics, law, police work, and criminal justice.
- The Human Service, Health, and Social Justice Track
The Human Service, Health, and Social Justice Track is recommended for students interested in counseling, social work, law, advocacy, public health, public policy, public administration, the environment, nonprofit administration, and other related careers.
- The Cultural Diversity Track
The Cultural Diversity Track is recommended for students seeking increased knowledge of diverse cultures. This track is especially useful for students considering furthering their education in anthropology, counseling, social work, or public health.
Department faculty members also either coordinate or participate in interdisciplinary programs such as: Aging Studies, Environmental Studies, East Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, and Peace, Justice, and Human Rights. These programs provide opportunities to study topics across a number of different departments.
