Sociology and criminology students at Valpo receive a broad education that combines the best of the liberal arts tradition with the practicalities of job-related skills. The sociology major is streamlined enough to allow for a second major. Some Valpo sociology students choose to increase their learning and hiring potential by double-majoring in fields such as business, political science, social work, or psychology, just to name a few.

In recent years, sociology majors have accepted positions with agencies such as the following:

Hannah Chapman ’17, Case Manager, Porter County PACT

Corrina Qualls ’16, Upward Bound, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth

Tanysha Gardner ’15, Lead Teacher, Teach for America
