You will learn sociological theories regarding the causes of conflict in America, such as prejudice, discrimination, and deviant behavior. You will also acquire the analytical tools necessary to collect and interpret criminological data. You'll have the chance to broaden your learning outside of sociology in such fields as ethics, political science, psychology, and statistics. In addition, Criminal Justice majors elect subjects relevant to modern criminology such as management, foreign language, human genetics, constitutional law, professional writing, or social work
