DePaul University College of LAS > Academics > Sociology > Undergraduate > Sociology (BA) > Concentration Requirements > Law, Crime and Criminology
This concentration spans topics of criminalization, the legal system, and criminal justice systems, paying particular attention to the way these affect marginalized segments of the population and work to maintain interlocking systems of oppression. Students in this concentration will learn about the cultural and structural forces that work to define deviance, inform the construction and interpretation of the law, and delimit the experiences of people affected by the criminal justice system. This concentration prepares students for careers in law, non-profit social justice work, social work, or youth services. We strongly suggest that students in this concentration take SOC 220 THEORIES OF CRIME AND DELINQUENCY.
