MiraCosta College MyPath2ASU™ degree spotlight
The BS program in criminology and criminal justice is for students who want to understand the causes of crime, the role of criminal justice agencies in the control of crime and the consequences of crime.
Students learn sociological, psychological, biological and economic explanations for individual crime as well as differences in crime across neighborhoods, states, countries and over time. They also learn about the history, legal issues and current practices of crime control via police agencies, the court system, prisons, probation and parole.
Whether your criminal justice career will be in policing, the courts, corrections, security, investigations, or another segment of the field, you will benefit from a multifaceted understanding of why people commit crimes and what society does --- and can do better --- to both respond to crime and to prevent it.
