    The Department of Sociology now offers Criminology as a major. A BA in Criminology focuses on the nature and causes of crime, the behavior of criminals, and how society reacts to crime and criminals. A minor in Criminology is also available. This year, we are sponsoring a Crime and Justice Issues series to foster conversations about criminology and to promote our new major.
