University Park, College of the Liberal Arts

PROFESSOR GLENN FIREBAUGH, Head, Department of Sociology

This major provides students with a broadly based liberal education focused on the understanding and analysis of crime and justice systems. Students obtain a foundation of knowledge of the basic components of the criminal justice and legal systems as well as abilities to solve problems, think and read critically, and write effectively within the context of criminal justice and criminological research and theory.

The B.A. degree is suitable for students seeking entry-level positions in the criminal justice system and for students interested in graduate and law school. Students interested in acquiring strong quantitative skills should consider the B.S. degree.

For the B.A. degree in Crime, Law, and Justice, a minimum of 124 credits is required.
