Regis' online bachelor's degree in criminology is for professionals in criminal justice and other fields such as social work and public policy who want to help prevent and solve crimes by understanding more about why they happen. The program is a critical analysis of social, political, and environmental factors that drive aberrant behavior, as well as the psychology of criminals.

Coursework in our online BS in criminology moves from general behaviors and causes of crime to specific issues such as juvenile crime, violence in the workplace, and terrorism. The curriculum also explores topics related to leadership, such as interorganizational communication and ethics. The BS in criminology requires three years documents work experience.

In addition to law enforcement and the criminal justice system, the knowledge offered in our bachelor's in criminology program is applicable to other fields such as private security, public policy, youth and family counseling, and intelligence analysis.

Whether you hope to move up in the criminal justice field or move into a related area, the online bachelor's in criminology offers the core knowledge of criminal psychology and behavior to help you get there.
