Colorado State University: Department of Sociology
Sustainable Agriculture
Degree Programs
General info
The Department offers three concentrations, General Sociology, Criminology/Criminal Justice and Environmental Sociology. Each concentration provides you with a broad education in the social and natural sciences, arts and humanities, communication, logic and critical thinking and mathematics. Although all three concentrations emphasize a liberal education, the Criminology/Criminal Justice concentration includes more courses that focus specifically on criminology, policing, law and corrections. Similarly, the Environmental Sociology concentration focuses on the association between societal well-being and environmental quality.

Your major is structured to ensure substantial flexibility in your field of study. After fulfilling all university, college and major requirements, you still have over 30 elective credit hours. You may use these elective credits to obtain a second major, a minor or an interdisciplinary studies certificate. This flexibility allows you to obtain competency in two or more areas and still graduate on time.
