Sociology is the study of human interaction. Courses in sociology provide the student with the background and analytical skills needed to understand social institutions and social change. The major in sociology offers a core curriculum directed toward understanding the complexities of modern society using theoretical perspectives and research methodologies. Students will have a strong foundation in research methods and writing-intensive courses. Upon graduation, these students will be prepared for graduate training in sociology and related fields.

The Sociology major with the concentration in Criminology requires eleven courses (33 hours, minimum): an eight-course core and three major electives. Five of the eleven courses (15 of the 33 semester hours), including SSCI 395, must be taken at Salem.
