The Crime, Deviance and Social Control program offers you a view of crime, deviance and social control from three distinct disciplines—sociology, psychology and criminal justice.
We regularly bring nationally recognized speakers to campus to discuss issues relating to law. Recent speakers range from retired U.S. Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor to author Piper Kerman, whose book Orange is the New Black chronicles the year she spent in a women's prison for drug trafficking.
While this concentration is relatively new, Roanoke students taking similar sociology and criminal justice coursework have entered graduate programs at the University of Virginia and Washington and Lee law schools. Others have secured jobs as paralegals, probation officers, case managers, social workers and police officers.
