The study of history helps the you better understand the context of the events you see in the news and fosters an enjoyment of our interconnected, globalized world history. Coursework you'll take in the history program involves training in the use of historical sources as a means for developing a critical faculty, and a spirit of inquiry and open-mindedness. In addition to history's cultural significance, a historical approach to problem solving for modern-day events is valuable if you are interested in teaching, law, journalism, politics, ministry, or civil or diplomatic services. We also have a major available if you want to teach at the secondary (high school) level (the licensure is secondary social studies).
When you study sociology at ENMU, you'll learn about the social forces and influences that structure human activity and experience. This discipline gives particular attention to configurations of groups and relationships as well as routines of everyday and organized social life. By examining cultural values and meanings through which humans express and define themselves, sociology offers you special insight of how larger social and cultural patterns infuse peoples' lives.
If you are interested in criminal justice at ENMU, you'll study the nature, types, causes, conditions and consequences of crime in society. The criminal justice program devotes significant attention to society's organized response to crime in the form of police, courts, judicial processes and corrections. Closely allied to sociology in both content and perspective, criminal justice gives you the opportunity to learn about cultural differences in how societies view crime and administer justice. Our criminal justice program will prepare you for a career in criminal justice or related fields.
