Criminology Minor

Criminology Minor Program Overview

Department Mission Statement

The Criminology minor, while rooted in the liberal arts, fosters a professional orientation for competent, ethical, and moral justice personnel carrying out the essential functions necessary for individual and communal justice in a free society. Through the analysis of crime, justice, and social control, in a multiplicity of applied settings, criminology minors will develop a definition of justice that is guided by Catholic teaching and its unrivaled moral philosophy.

Aims

Students who minor in Criminology–and major in a related field like Sociology or Political Science–will be prepared for the careers in policing and law enforcement, courts and the judicial system, corrections and alternative disposition programs such as Probation and Parole, Private Sector justice, forensic service units,  law and legal positions, and aligned careers in military settings, service as crime and policy analysts, or application to graduate and law school for further education.
