Criminology and Psychology


| Bachelor of Arts

The combined Criminology and Psychology major is excellent preparation if you are considering advanced study or careers in areas such as criminology, law, or social work. Allowing you to specialize in two related fields, combined majors draw on the knowledge and opportunities afforded by two academic departments and fields of study. Small class sizes and a campus in the midst of the large metropolitan area of Indianapolis provide internship and service learning opportunities, preparing students for graduate or professional school or careers.

Sample courses in this program include:

  • PS320, Life Span Developmental Psychology
  • PS350, Social Psychology
  • PS420, History of Psychology
  • SO321 Crime and Society
  • SO339 Violence, Media and Culture
  • SO353 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency
