Department of Social Sciences

Psychology, Sociology, & Criminal Justice

Students who study psychology, sociology, and criminal justice are interested in what motivates human behavior, and what can be done to improve it. These students enjoy understanding people individually and in groups in order to make their lives better.

A social sciences degree is very versatile, preparing you for a job or graduate study. Common careers for these graduates include: social work and human services, the business world, government and public service, law enforcement, vocational ministry, or anything in which an understanding of human behavior and society is helpful.

Courses in the social sciences sharpen key skills that prepare you to enter our rapidly changing workplace -- skills such as evaluating information, relating effectively to others, and clear and persuasive communication.

"There is more time, and there are more friends, in college - take advantage of that! My years at Judson were formative and priceless, though I wish I had done more while there. Gain as many experiences as you can, including in your field of choice, and connect/collaborate with as many people as you can. Those experiences and connections will transform you and set you up for great things in the future."
