Sociology and Criminology Department

  • How and why have humans created the social structures and institutions that we live with today?
  • How do social structures and institutions affect the individual?
  • How does crime intersect with law or society?

If you’ve wondered about these and similar issues or are planning a career that focuses on helping others, sociology and criminology might be the majors for you.

Dominican’s Sociology/Criminology department prepares students for careers in social work, social services, human resources, counseling, public administration, law, law enforcement and general business. 

The department also offers minors and encourages its students to complete minors in related fields like social justice and civic engagement. Internships and service learning are vital educational tools in sociology and criminology.
