Bachelor of Arts - Criminology & Justice Studies
The Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Justice Studies takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of crime, law and justice. Faculty members view crime, deviance and society’s response from the fields of sociology, political science, psychology, social work and traditional criminal justice viewpoints. The curriculum provides a firm understanding of the basic institutions of the criminal justice
system. Students are also exposed to criminological theory
and diversity courses, which help them understand the complex
relationship between the individual, society and the criminal justice system. The program
stresses effective writing and analytical skills. Students are afforded the opportunity to earn
credit through internship placements, including Kent State’s fully accredited police academy.
