Criminology

Criminology is the scientific study of crime, including the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency. The criminology major is well-suited for students interested in parole and probation careers, criminal justice employment as well as law school. Information about career options for criminology majors is offered by the American Sociological Association and the American Society of Criminology.
