  • American Minority Relations
  • Contemporary Social Problems

And that’s just the beginning!

SSWC provides interdisciplinary course offerings that allow you to interact with and learn from faculty and students in areas complementary to your major.  Additionally, each SSWC program requires a professional development class -- a capstone course -- that prepares Sociology, Social Work, and Criminology seniors for their career paths after graduation.

SSWC's faculty and staff want you to succeed in your career as a sociologist, social worker, or criminologist.  

Be a part of our progress!
