This concentration is designed for majors interested in applying their study of sociology to careers in law, law enforcement, prevention, corrections, and criminal or juvenile casework. It provides conceptual and practical experiences in criminology.
Students may also combine the criminology concentration with a major or minor in another discipline, such as business, intercultural studies, political science, psychology, religious studies, or urban studies.
At Elmhurst, we develop an individualized program to meet each student's particular interests and career goals.
The recommended concentration courses are:
SOC 301 Social Problems (fall of junior year)
SOC/CJ 319 Juvenile Delinquency and the Justice System (junior year)
SOC/CJ 408 Criminology (spring of junior year)
SOC 490 Independent Field Work (senior year)
Students should consult with sociology faculty regarding recommended electives in sociology and related disciplines.
