Bachelor of Arts in Criminology


As sociologists, criminologists study factors such as when and where crimes are most often committed, the reasons for criminal behavior, and the types of crimes most often committed. They may also research crime's effect on society at large, and the government's response to crime. Criminology draws on the fields of sociology and psychology more than the field of forensics. Jobs often rely on the ability to predict criminals' moves. Many graduates work in law enforcement, the prison system, juvenile corrections, probation or parole, or use the bachelor’s degree to prepare for graduate or law school.
