The Ohio State University at Marion


Sociology/Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies

The Department of Sociology offers degrees in both Sociology and Criminology & Criminal Justice Studies, as well as minors in sociology, criminology, social inequality, and health and society. Students may also select a public health major with a specialization in Sociology available through the department of Public Health.

Ohio State Marion offers many sociology and criminology courses that allow students to complete most of their course requirements locally. In the classroom, we encourage students to develop critical thinking skills and apply the knowledge and perspectives they are learning to the world around them.

Outside of class, students can join the Sociology/Criminology Club, engage in research with one of our faculty, and intern with a local business or organization to gain value experience for the job market.
