The Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology is offered by the Criminology Program in the Department of Sociology.

This major provides students with a broadly based liberal education focused on the understanding and analysis of crime and justice systems. Students obtain a foundation of knowledge of the basic components of the criminal justice and legal systems as well as abilities to solve problems, think and read critically, and write effectively within the context of criminal justice and criminological research and theory.

The B.A. degree is suitable for students seeking entry-level positions in the criminal justice system and for students interested in graduate and law school. Students interested in acquiring strong quantitative skills should consider the B.S. degree. Criminology is a broad and interdisciplinary field of study that promotes an understanding of crime and the criminal justice system and how they relate to human behavior, social environments, and government policy. Examples of topics studied in Criminology are: the causes and consequences of deviant and/or criminal behavior; the structure and functions of the criminal justice system; societal and individual reactions to crimes and criminal justice processing; the spatial and geographical elements associated with crime and poverty; and the dynamics of criminal justice policy making.

PROGRAM LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize the causes and consequences of crime at the micro and macro levels and match these with prominent criminological perspectives.
  • Describe the interrelated institutions and processes of the criminal justice system.
  • Apply theories of crime and criminal justice to explain actual and hypothetical scenarios, behaviors, and trends.
  • Explain the various social science methods of inquiry and use these to test specific criminological research questions.
  • Recognize and explain macro-social inequities in crime and criminal justice processes by race, social class, gender, region and age.
  • Locate and consult works in the area to produce a research paper that is coherent, cogent, and attentive to conventions of the field.

CAREER PATHS

There are opportunities for careers in criminology for everyone. Whether you like field work, working in a laboratory or working behind the scenes in research or administration, the chances are you'll find a rewarding career.
