Criminal Justice & Sociology

 Mission Statement

The Criminal Justice and Sociology program at Cameron University offers programs leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Sociology, and an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Criminal Justice. Our academic programs empower students to explore their interests, express their ideas, and experience the pride of uncovering new knowledge.

The Criminal Justice programs allow students to learn about the etiology of crime and societal reaction to the causes of crime. The role of law enforcement agencies, courts, correctional agencies, and private agencies that assist in the prevention and control of crime and delinquency are within the purview of the Criminal Justice programs.

The Sociology degree provides critical knowledge to students on social institutions, social change, and consequences of human behavior. Students learn to apply research skills and theoretical knowledge to the challenging issues of our times. Graduates of our programs find employment with criminal justice agencies, social services, government agencies, teaching, or proceed to graduate school.
