B.S. Criminology and Criminal Justice
Let’s face it: Crime happens.
And if you want to solve crime, study it or seek out justice, you’ve come to right place.
Our Criminology and Criminal Justice program is the largest and oldest in Hawaii, offering theory-based and experiential learning experiences, a suite of internships and career development programs, and a supportive, vibrant and innovative learning environment.
Our bachelor’s degree prepares our graduates to pursue careers in law enforcement, public safety, criminal justice or criminology or an advanced degree, including in law or criminology research. Our curriculum gives students an understanding of: the complexities of the American criminal justice system, causes of crime, criminal justice law and research and the basic techniques of crime scene investigation.
Our faculty members are leaders in their fields. They believe in the power of personal experience—stressing mentorship, collaboration and project-based learning inside and outside the classroom.
