The Sociology Program offers master’s degrees either through interdisciplinary studies or as a part of the criminal justice master’s program. Graduate study in sociology prepares the student to understand change in society and its institutions and to apply this understanding in a variety of employment settings. These include community college teaching, criminal justice agencies, corporate organizations, social policy development, social action programming, social research and its practical applications. Graduate sociology courses can be used as a minor field of study for the master’s degree in criminal justice. Graduate study also prepares students for various doctoral programs in sociology.
