Sociologists study institutions, and among the most important is the law. This concentration examines issues such as: What is deviance and how do we define it? What is the relationship between the law and other social institutions? This concentration is suitable for students with a variety of interests, but may be especially well-suited to those interested in careers in law and criminal justice.
