Bachelor of Science in Criminology

The field of criminology is the study of crime and the various agencies of justice as they operate and react to crime, criminals, and victims. It is therefore the mission of the Criminology program to provide the community with professionally competent and morally upright graduates who can deliver efficient and effective services in crime prevention, crime detection, and investigation, law enforcement, public safety, custody and rehabilitation of offenders, and criminological research, among others.


The Department of Criminology strives for excellence in criminological theory, research, and practice. We will be a national model in developing inclusive social scientists, practitioners, and policymakers who will apply acquired skills and knowledge in collaboration with their communities by embodying values.


The Bachelor of Science in Criminology program’s mission is to help students understand how crime is defined, analyzed, and addressed in policy and practice. Students understand crime as a social phenomenon and convey it through inclusive exchange of perspectives through the multidisciplinary exploration of theory and research. Students are better prepared for professional success when they take an individualized, collaborative approach to learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
