Criminology and Security Studies
Our department offers an BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice and an MA degree in Criminal Justice. In addition, we have now expanded our degree programs by implementing an BS in Corporate Security and an BS in Homeland Security in order to meet the evolving security needs demanded by both the private and public sectors and to protect critical infrastructure, assets, and people.
All three of our undergraduate degree programs provide a foundation of knowledge needed for students interested in a variety of careers in the following areas:
- law enforcement
- justice system
- security management in the private sector
- federal law enforcement and governmental agencies involved in national security
Our mission is to enrich the criminal justice and security communities of Pennsylvania and the nation with ethically and critically informed graduates. We accomplish this by being recognized as a premier provider of rigorous, accessible, and high quality educational experience to learners in Pennsylvania and beyond.
