- Criminal justice is an excellent stand-alone major, but is also easily combined as a double major with other pertinent fields. The major is seldom seen among comparable schools.
- The family science major provides preparation for careers related to marriage and family issues or for graduate study. It is flexible enough to be combined as a double major with a related discipline.
- The sociology major—either alone or in combination with another major—prepares students for graduate work or careers in government, social services, business, law and related areas.
- The Social Work Program is accredited by the Council of Social Work Education, and faculty members have given presentations at national conferences, including NASW and NACSW conferences.
- Social work majors complete three mini-internships and a full-semester practicum, and criminal justice majors complete two internships. Family Science majors also are required to complete an internship. Sociology majors are strongly encouraged to complete an internship.
Social work students take a senior trip, providing services to people in need. This is also an opportunity to reflect on their university years and celebrate their upcoming graduation. Past trips have included San Fransisco, Atlanta, Louisville, and Washington, D.C.
