The criminology major provides marketable skills and knowledge that relate to crime prevention, law enforcement, and the court system. The criminology major is comprehensive, adding the skills in research, theory, and data analytics that prepare students beyond an understanding of criminal procedures or evidence. This major offers an overview of criminology as a field of study, educates students in the complexities of criminal behavior and public safety, and familiarizes them with the justice system processes and the causes, correlations and consequences of criminal behavior and victimization."
