Welcome to Criminology!

Criminology is swiftly expanding with careers in areas such as crime prevention, insurance fraud, law enforcement, urban crisis and response, the juvenile justice system, research diversion programming corrections and many areas in homeland security.

Our mission at Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles, is to provide a comprehensive education in criminology that will prepare students to succeed as professionals and leaders in the field. The major is excellent preparation for any career that deals with at risk populations, the justice system, social work, or the law.

If you have any questions about the major, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
