Criminology is the systematic study of crime and criminal behaviour, including their causes, the legal aspects, prevention, and control. This discipline uses multiple perspectives (e.g., sociological, psychological, legal) to understand criminal activity and the social context of crime. Knowledge created by criminologists informs social policies that aim to prevent crime and to improve the response to crime. To major in Criminology, students must complete thirty-six (36) credit hours. The undergraduate program enables students to obtain a solid foundation in Criminology for further study at the graduate level, for the pursuit of Criminology-related disciplines, and for careers in related professions.
