Welcome to the Department of Sociology and Criminology in the College of Arts and Sciences at UNCW. Our department provides a rich learning experience for students interested in the social sciences. We offer a major in Sociology with either a Public Sociology or General Sociology option.  We also offer a major in Criminology with the option to choose a Criminology or Criminal Justice concentration. In addition, we offer minors in both Sociology and Criminology.  See our MA program webpage for more information about our Master’s in Sociology and Criminology.

For important information about majors, including degree requirements, course descriptions, and admissions requirements, go to these links to view the Sociology, Criminology, or Master’s Program pages.

It typically takes a minimum of two years to complete the requirements for a major in Sociology, whether choosing the General or Public Sociology concentration. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the major! Please contact [Associate Chair Dr. Donna King].

Our Faculty page has information about all of our faculty members including their areas of research, courses they teach, their personal websites, and course syllabi.

If you are interested in joining the Sociology and Criminology Club or applying for a scholarship, visit Clubs & Scholarships to find out about club meeting schedules, available scholarships, requirements and deadlines.
