Program Description

The goal of the four-year BS in criminology and criminal justice program at Arizona State University is to prepare students for a career in law enforcement, corrections, security or investigations. The foundation of the program is social science theories and methods, and students may explore various explanations for individual crime (such as sociological, psychological and economic status), as well as long-term trends in crime across different cities, states and countries. Participants may also explore the roles of police agencies, courts and prisons in crime prevention and prosecution. Throughout the program, there may be opportunities for students to participate in internships and to study abroad.

Students may also pursue higher degrees, such as a two-year MS in criminology and criminal justice, which requires 30 credit hours, or a five-year Ph.D. in criminology and criminal justice, requiring 84 credit hours. Coursework may emphasize theory, research and policy in the criminal justice field. Students may pursue careers in leadership roles in the criminal justice system.
