Combined Majors in Sociology & Criminology

The Sociology and Criminology department offers two combined majors within our department, two with the Psychology department, and one with the Philosophy and Religious Studies department. These combined majors give students the opportunity to specialize in two related fields and are excellent preparation for students considering advanced study and/or careers in areas such as criminology, criminal justice, law, social work, counseling, or sociology.

Combined majors require more coursework than a regular major, but less coursework than completing a major in each subject area separately (i.e., double majoring). Students completing a combined major receive one degree.

The information found on this website with respect to major/minor/program requirements is primarily directed at providing prospective students a general roadmap of the curriculum. Current Butler students are expected to review their degree audit report at and speak with their advisor regularly for detailed information regarding their specific degree requirements and their progress toward degree completion.
