Criminology Minor Now Offered
Starting fall 2020, the General Social Sciences Program is now offering a new minor in criminology.
The criminology minor affords students the opportunity to analyze how society defines, regulates, and seeks to prevent criminal behavior as well as considering what factors lead people to commit crimes. Courses are selected from multiple social science disciplines including sociology, anthropology, political science, psychology and indigenous, race and ethnic studies. This minor builds on the interdisciplinary nature of General Social Studies, giving students the opportunity to learn about criminology from multiple perspectives. For example, students can explore social inequality in relation to crime, law enforcement, and incarceration from the vantage points of political science, sociology, and indigenous, race, and ethnic studies.
