Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice (CRM)

Criminology is the study of crime, the causes of crime, the meaning of crime in terms of law, and community reaction to crime, while criminal justice refers to the system used by government to maintain social control, prevent crime, enforce laws and administer justice. Our Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice program provides students with a multidisciplinary understanding of crime and justice within the framework of broader social processes.

About the Program

The curriculum offered at EMU is grounded in both theory and the application of crime and crime control, reflecting not only on the interrelationships of multiple disciplines, such as history, law and psychology, but also on the multicultural, international and global relationships of peace and conflict. Additionally, our program is designed to examine fundamental questions of morality, ethics, human rights and social justice as these pertain to the administration of criminal law. Students who graduate from our program are prepared to enter any number of jobs and graduate programs.

For additional information about program and graduation requirements and course descriptions, please see the Catalog. You can also plan your program of study using the Criminology degree planner.
