BA in Sociology with a Concentration in Criminology

Birdseye view of Idaho State University

This track is offered as an alternative to the general Sociology major. Students can major in Sociology and choose electives to complete a more specialized track in Criminology. Sociology majors can thus specialize in their area of interest, more readily make connections among Sociology courses, form cohorts with other Sociology majors in this track, and build a resume with a specialization in Criminology. A student who elects to obtain this certificate must take the required courses for sociology majors, 15 credits in required criminology courses, specified general education requirements, and two Sociology electives from a list of suggested sociology courses. The certificate will not be noted on the transcript, but students who complete majors with this option and file a signed form will receive a certificate acknowledging they have completed the track. The Department suggests that these students note their track on their resumes after their majors.
