Criminology Course Sequencing

The course sequencing for criminology majors begins with an introduction to criminology, criminological theory, and the historical, philosophical, and modern day approaches to policing, courts, and corrections.  Throughout the course sequencing students are exposed to empirical research, governmental reports, and readings in required texts.  As part of the rich undergraduate educational experience that is offered at The College of New Jersey, criminology majors are also required to study a modern language and complete courses in quantitative reasoning, historical perspectives, and a natural science to name a few as part of the liberal learning curriculum.  In the junior and senior years, criminology majors hone their skills in advanced criminology topics, research methodology, applied data analysis, and policy analysis.
