The mission of the Department of Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Social Work is to employ theory and knowledge and teach skills to empower our students to contribute to a better society.
We seek to explore and reveal how society and culture shape human lives, attitudes, and actions. We strive to make our students more effective and valuable as citizens, scholars, and professionals through teaching the skills of social analysis, research, writing, and social action.
This 2016-2017 academic year marks the 50th year of the Department of Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Social Work Department. We are celebrating on October 21, 2016 on the Summerville Campus in the JSAC Ballroom. We welcome all alumni and current and former faculty, student, staff, and administration. We will also take this same time to mark the retirement of Dr. Bill Reese. So please stop in, we would love to see you!
