Sociology and Criminal Justice Department Mission
The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice makes it possible for students to graduate from Lincoln University confident in their ability to help shape a more humane world by putting their disciplinary knowledge to work in the fields such as human services, law, business, government, and community development, or by pursuing graduate studies.
The programs housed in the department are all designed to provide students with a solid understanding of social processes, social institutions, and the linkages between the individual and the larger society. The department offers majors in Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice. Students may elect to pursue either a Bachelor of Arts degree, which is recommended for students considering postgraduate, professional or academic study, or a Bachelor of Science degree, which is generally career-oriented.
