The Minor in Criminology focuses on the nature and cause of crime, criminal behavior and how society reacts to crime and criminals. Graduates can pursue a range of careers, including law enforcement, public safety, policy analysis and criminal justice reform, as well as work with communities and individuals impacted by crime or criminal justice institutions. Consequently, the Minor in Criminology is ideal for students who plan to work in settings which require a strong background in crime or law, with skills associated with analyzing and interpreting data. It is also an appropriate area of concentrated study for students whose plans include graduate training in sociology, criminology, criminal justice, or law, or who are interested in pursuing advanced training in any of the wide range of crime, law, or justice professions.
