The Criminology major is offered by the Sociology Department and draws extensively from sociology. The major in criminology leads to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree.
The Major offers students an understanding of crime and delinquency and evaluates the utility of various crime control methods, includ- ing legislative policies, policing, incarcerations, as well as preventive and restorative solutions. It is highly relevant to those seeking to advance in the fields of law enforcement, corrections, law and intelligence.
