Sociology class at Meredith.

Part of the Department of History, Political Science, Religious & Ethical Studies and Sociology, Meredith's sociology program offers majors in both sociology and criminology, or a double major in sociology and criminology.

Sociology is the scientific study of society, which involves the study of human behavior and the social lives of people, groups and societies. Criminology is the study of crime and related issues from a liberal arts and social science perspective.

Students within the sociology program conduct research and field work, and participate in special events related to their program of study.
