The Sociology with Concentration in Criminology program at University of North Carolina Greensboro prepares students for further study at the Ph.D. level, for research and administrative positions in public or private organizations, and for teaching sociology in a variety of settings. All of the students in the program acquire a general foundation in sociology and a concentration in criminology.
With prior approval of the advisor, a student will select 6 hours from other 500-or 600-level sociology courses or social science courses in other departments.
UNCG Sociology serves undergraduate and graduate students, the College & University, the academy, and our communities through teaching, scholarship, mentorship, outreach, and active citizenship. We put sociology to work to solve problems, educate students and the public, raise critical questions, and create freer intellectual spaces. Grounded in an appreciation of the complexity, variety, and necessity of sociological inquiry, we are teacher-scholars driven to advance the promise of sociology at every level and in every context.
