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.
