About

The Sociology, Criminology and Criminal Justice Concentration at Colorado State University trains students to view issues of crime, victimization, and justice through a sociological lens.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

A sociological perspective on these issues focuses our attention to the social aspects of crime, law, and deviance including understanding societal factors that contribute to crime, effective and innovative programmatic approaches to prevent or control crime, the unintended consequences of the system for marginalized communities, and the role of research in creating effective policy.  

The Sociology, Criminology and Criminal Justice Concentration from Colorado State University  is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in research methods, data collection, analysis, and theory, which are all essential skills for those interested in careers associated with law, justice, or advocacy—all professional paths for which this concentration prepares students well.

Students will:

  • Analyze critically the major classical and contemporary theories from the 19th and 20th centuries. Students are expected to demonstrate how well these theories help us understand or explain current social phenomena both in the U.S. and abroad. Students will learn to apply a wide variety of theories, including European critical theory, functionalism, symbolic interactionism, and post-modern theory, in required empirical research.
  • Analyze critically sociological phenomena by applying objective social research methodologies. Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of sociological theories and the application of these theories to real world social phenomena. 

Potential Occupations

Careers are exceptionally varied. Participating in internships and cooperative education opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Sociology graduates apply their education to a large variety of occupations in the non-profit, private, and public sectors. 

Because Sociology graduates possess a number of transferable communication, analytical, and people skills, they find positions in government, industry, and academia. Many employers appreciate liberal arts majors for their multiple skills and their ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and work environments. Graduates who go on to advanced studies can pursue careers in sociology or attain advanced positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
