Major Highlight - Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies
Student intern with Grove City Police Department.
If you've ever found yourself wondering why crime exists, how crime affects individuals and societies, or how crime can be prevented and controlled, you should consider majoring in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies.  This major is distinct in its integration of a science-based sociological perspective on crime with real-world applied skills that allow students to analyze the causes and consequences of crime and the workings of the criminal justice system and solve a range of social problems related to crime. Students learn how to: 1) think critically about human social life, including crime, 2) conduct empirical research and analyze data using statistics, and 3) become leaders in a range of careers, including criminal justice, law, law enforcement, and social services. To learn more, visit their website or schedule an appointment with an advisor at socadvising@sociology.osu.edu or (614) 292-1175.
