The Sociology Major

The Department of Sociology at OU offers two tracks within the sociology major: the general sociology option and the criminology option. The general sociology option gives students a broad education in the field of sociology, and students can select any type of upper-division sociology electives to complete the major. By contrast, the criminology option focuses on criminology, a specialized area within sociology, so students on this track take upper-division electives that focus on the nature, extent, causes, and control of criminal behavior.

If you have questions about the major, email the sociology advisor, Debra Hensley-Luczycki, at, or sign up for an appointment with Debra through iAdvise.
