The Criminology program introduces students to sociological perspectives on the causes, consequences, and control of criminal behavior.
  • Course work focuses on the development and organization of criminal justice institutions, especially the police, courts, and corrections. Students examine pressing social issues such as racial profiling, mass incarceration, and prisoner re-entry.
  • The program fosters a commitment to social justice and the common good as students develop a sociological imagination and learn to critically consume information, theorize social contexts, create new knowledge, and communicate with and for others. In addition to providing opportunities for academic research and analysis, students gain the knowledge base and skills for pursuing careers in criminal justice institutions and related policy and non-profit fields.
