BA Criminology & Criminal Justice

Criminology and criminal justice studies are two different but overlapping academic fields. Criminology is the scientific study of the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of crime as well as responses to crime. Criminal justice science is the study of official responses to crime, namely in the areas of law, policing, courts, corrections, and treatment and advocacy. Our BA in CCJ program is designed to teach the knowledge and skills needed to be proficient in both fields. Students should finish the program prepared to enter a wide range of criminology and criminal justice-related occupations.
