Criminology Graduate Outcomes

Unlike criminal justice, criminology is a broad area of studies that covers not only the three main areas of the criminal justice system (police, courts and corrections), but also encompasses at-risk youth, juvenile delinquency, substance use disorders, legal studies, international criminology and victimology. As such, when students graduate with a B.A. in Criminology, they move into myriad professions, agencies, graduate schools, and service opportunities. Below are a small sample of graduate outcomes.
