Criminology & Criminal Justice
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) is a nationally-recognized leader in the scientific study of the causes of crime and criminal justice system responses. The school provides its students with the foundation for entering many diversified criminal justice-related careers in corrections, courts, and law, juvenile services, law enforcement, private security, and victim services. The curriculum is composed of a broad range of courses in corrections, courts, criminology, diversity, deviant behavior and violence, juvenile delinquency, law, law enforcement, research methods, and various special topics. Through the SCCJ internship program, students can obtain valuable work experience within various criminal justice agencies. Although the bachelor of science in criminology and criminal justice degree can be earned entirely on the Lincoln campus, the degree is granted by the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
