Psychology, Sociology & Criminal Justice
Develop critical thinking skills
Students majoring in psychology, sociology and criminal justice have the opportunity to pursue internships and research. Students might also gain research experience by working closely with a specific faculty member to conduct empirical investigations in various areas of psychological, sociological or criminological inquiry.
The mission of the Department of Psychology, Sociology and Criminal Justice is to provide students with an intellectual foundation in the theories that explain human behavior under both normal and abnormal conditions and clarify how pre-existing patterns of behavior shape human interaction. Students are taught to critically evaluate, theoretically analyze, and scientifically produce research findings about everyday life and to translate the knowledge they have gained from courses through the application of these skills.
