Double Major in Criminal justice and Sociology at Marshall

Double Major

I plan on going to college for a double major in Criminal Justice and Sociology. Criminal Justice is the system of governments directed at upholding social control. Sociology is the study of groups of people and social problems. Why i wanted to complete these majors is because the FBI is an organization in the Criminal Justice system, so majoring in Criminal Justice will give me an inside look at what to expect and will give my a broad understanding of all the organizations. Working in Criminal Justice you are always communicating with people whether it be interrogatting, arresting, or just trying to resolve a siuation. Sociology would give you an understanding to how people think and how best to handle them.
