of socio-economic, cultural, institutional and physical environments. Our programs
prepare students for citizenship by encouraging them to understand, tolerate and respect
the vast array of cultural and intellectual differences found throughout the world.
A degree in criminal justice offers careers in public and private sectors, while a sociology degree prepares students to work with organizations and communities.
