MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR - Welcome from Dr. Anna Zajicek

Director of Online Education
BA and MA in Sociology | 2008 | Associate Vice President for the University of Chicago’s Department of Safety and Security
"I think the most important thing I have learned from the program is to always look at things from different perspectives."
Major: Criminolog and Sociology
"Before college, I had always considered our legal system to be just; however, I learned through my courses at the University of Arkansas that this statement is extremely inaccurate. I hope to continue my degree at the masters level, where I plan on centering my research around the injustices procured through capital punishment."
The purpose of the Department of Sociology and Criminology is to increase knowledge and promote positive social change through informing social policy and practice.
The mission is to produce and disseminate scientific knowledge to students, our peers, and the public through world-class education, research, and service.
The vision of the Department is to became regional leader in sociology and criminology by 2025 by integrating and rewarding the diverse strengths of our faculty in teaching, research, and public service.
Excellence in Research,
Teaching and Service

Diversity and Inclusion
