Our major in criminology and law studies investigates the interaction between phenomena of crime and law. We also look into how police, courts and the corrections system work, as well as why the criminal justice system works the way it does.
This interdisciplinary field prepares students for the challenges of living and working in a complex and changing criminal justice field. Many students continue on to law school or pursue advanced degrees in criminology. Career opportunities are wide and cover a variety of criminal justice and human service agencies.
