The nation needs men and women who have the knowledge and expertise to deter criminal behavior — the nation needs you. Regis University’s Bachelor of Science in Criminology gives you insight into the criminal mind so you can prevent criminal acts before they occur. The program is customizable and critically analyzes the social, political, and environmental factors that drive crime. Unlike a criminal justice degree, which focuses on policing and law enforcement, Regis’ criminology degree offers vital knowledge on criminal behavior, its causes, and its overall impact on society.

Regis’ criminology program opens more doors to career opportunity. The skills taught are useful in law enforcement, social services, private and industrial security, loss prevention, counseling, and many other fields. You’ll be able to deter criminal activity in the field that fits your passion.

Course work progresses beyond general behaviors and causes of crime to focus on specific issues, such as juvenile crime, violence in the workplace and terrorism.
