ماذا سوف أتعلم؟

Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behavior. Because crime is a core societal issue, criminologists examine society’s response to crime and the role of the state in crime prevention and enforcement. It is not always easy to understand why people commit crimes, what an appropriate punishment may be or how laws impact the prevention of crime. Criminologists study all of these issues and more. Criminology is a field of sociology that borrows from the disciplines of law, political science, history and psychology, among others.

Careers in Criminology

Police officers and federal agents, corrections and probation officers, crime scene investigators and victim advocates - these are among the varied career paths that can be pursued with a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminology. Local, state and federal justice agencies hire people with degrees in criminology. As with any professional field, a graduate degree can lead to even higher-level careers in law enforcement, corrections, courts and human services.

The University’s Career Center is an important resource for students pursuing their career. Licensed counselors are available to provide strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and help students connect with campus recruiters.

Students must complete 120 hours to graduate: 42 hours from the University’s core curriculum and 42 specific hours in the major, including courses in criminological theory, criminal justice, theories of justice, comparative justice systems, research methods (including a senior research seminar) and statistics. In addition, students must also take elective hours.
