Traditional Academic Minor

Our traditional general sociology academic minor provides an introduction to the core concepts, theories, and methods of sociology.

Pre-Professional Minors

Our pre-professional minors help prepare students for a variety of fields, including management, law, medicine, and research. They all provide a foundation in the social contexts and social dynamics of their respective fields, and are a useful and marketable supplement to pre-professional majors. They include:

  • Medical Sociology
  • Business and Society
  • Law and Society


The criminology minor focuses on the social-scientific study of crime and the criminal justice system, including juvenile and adult criminal behavior, policing, the criminal and civil courts, and corrections. This minor is suitable for student in any major.
