Criminology vs. Criminal Justice

How does a Criminology degree differ from one in Criminal Justice? Criminology focuses on criminal behavior, its causes, and its patterns as a method of capturing criminals and preventing crime. Criminal Justice emphasizes procedures related to the apprehension and treatment of criminals.

A degree in criminology is beneficial to law enforcement officers and other criminal justice professionals planning to move into management or leadership roles. With its wide-ranging subject area—the curriculum includes psychology, forensic science, and terrorism— graduates may find it applicable to many other fields as well, such as private security, intelligence gathering and analysis, and insurance investigation.
