Criminology and Justice

Just like on TV, a criminology and justice career requires not only cutting-edge technology, but also research skills combined with a comprehensive and critical understanding of the criminal justice system.

Start with a Criminal Justice degree and join the more than 1,000 students who have graduated from Loyola with this degree since 1960. Loyola offers discounts to members of local law enforcement agencies seeking bachelor's degrees. You can also minor in forensic science or criminal justice.

We also offer a Master of Criminal Justice. Find out more about our programs.
