The Department of Sociology and Criminology and Law offers the largest interdisciplinary degree program at UF. Students seeking a degree in criminology and law will study the complexities of relationships among the legal, social, political, historical and psychological influences affecting law processes and crime and justice. Courses focus on explanations for the development of law within society, why people break laws and how society reacts to law-breaking. Interdisciplinary breadth in the study of criminology and law is essential for those majoring in criminology. Majors may enroll in relevant courses offered outside the department. After obtaining a B.A. in criminology and law, students can seek careers as professionals working within the criminal or juvenile justice systems (i.e., courts, law enforcement, corrections). Many students also attend law school, while others attend graduate school where they may conduct research on criminological issues.
