Butler’s Criminology major emphasizes both the fundamentals of the discipline and the practical experience that can be learned only from hands-on exercises in a flourishing metropolis. Functioning as the students’ own urban laboratory, the city of Indianapolis serves as the backdrop to a rich, multidisciplinary education in the small, liberal arts environment for which our school is known. Rooted in sociological theory and methods, the major offers small class sizes, internship and service learning opportunities, and the chance to pursue individual research interests, preparing students to enter careers or to attend law or professional school.
