Academic Concentrations

The Department of Sociology and Family Studies offers two academic concentrations: Gerontology and Criminology. The areas of concentration are designed so they can be completed as part of the normal progression through the electives associated with the Sociology major or minor. Completion of the concentration requirements will be noted on academic transcripts. Although we offer these concentrations, they are not a graduation requirement.
