We designed this degree to provide you with the knowledge and analytical skills appropriate for a variety of career paths. These include working in an area of the public justice system, such as police, courts, corrections, regulatory agencies, and environmental protection, or in community-based programs related to crime prevention, rehabilitation, and victim assistance, as well as pursuing further education in graduate or law school. If you are interested in pursuing a career in one of the major areas of the Criminal Justice System—the courts, corrections, juvenile justice, or law enforcement—or if you want to further your education in law school or graduate school, the BS in Criminology and Criminal Justice will provide you with the knowledge and analytical skills to succeed. In this program you will learn about the nature of crime and the purpose, operations, and consequences of the various components of the justice system, in both the United States and abroad.
