About the Sociology Program and Minor
Sociology is the study of society and its component parts, groups, cultures, norms, roles, and their institutional and organizational relationships. Sociology is a discipline in the social sciences and part of the liberal arts approach to education. The UW-Platteville Department of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences offers a minor in sociology that requires a minimum of 24 credits, including no fewer than 12 credits at the 3000 level or above.
Students often minor in sociology if their majors are criminal justice or psychology. Both of these disciplines lead to employment in the criminal justice system, or the social welfare system.
Students of sociology learn important skills in reading, writing, analysis, and logic. Students learn to do research and to interpret social, economic, political, cultural, and technical change in a variety of contexts.
