"The faculty in the Sociology and Criminology department were outstanding. I was fortunate to receive excellent mentoring while obtaining my BA, and decided to stay for my MA to build on those relationships. My education in the MA Sociology Program is the reason that I am doing what I do today. It provided me with the research experience that is required for my current position."

"I have always had a passion for the Criminal Justice system, though when I entered college I was unsure of which major to pursue. After taking Intro to Criminal Justice, I was hooked (Additionally, I have a minor in Legal Studies)! I recently added Sociology as a major also! I am pumped for an exciting career that will make a difference"
