The Department of Sociology offers a dual bachelor of arts with a major in criminal justice and master of arts in the field of criminology degree program. Students may take 9 graduate credits as part of their undergraduate program, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's. This arrangement makes the program ideal for undergraduate students who wish to continue their education in criminology on an accelerated timeline. The program's coursework draws from criminal law, forensic science, abnormal psychology, human rights, ethics, and much more. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.

Students interested in the dual degree program should apply to the graduate portion of the program no later than April 1 of their junior year. Visit the program website for additional information.
