    My major involves the legal and investigative work on a crime scene and in the court system. I pay attention to small details which advances my knowledge and helps me develop a more precise and accurate conclusion. This field of study motivates the mind, thought process, and the physical being of my body.

  • Be An Example.

    Rosemont College is a small, welcoming community that has the means to be hands on with teaching. I chose sociology as my major because I once was a troubled youth, and I am now on a straight and positive path to succeed in life. I wish to help youth who may be walking the path I once did.

  • Be Influential.

    When I came to Rosemont, I thought I understood the path I would need to follow to fulfill my dream of becoming an accomplished therapist. I was pleasantly surprised when I began taking some classes in the Sociology department, that its curriculum and clinical sociological focus could land me where I always envisioned myself. Being a sociology major has changed the way I look at the world and how I plan on being an influence on it!
