The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.

Criminal Justice and Criminology

The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Loyola University Chicago offers several academic programs. The department's undergraduate program leads to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, which introduces students to all aspects of the nation's complex criminal justice system, while stressing individual growth and personal attention, a hallmark of the 450-year-old Jesuit tradition that inspires Loyola University Chicago.

Students may elect to pursue a minor course of study if they have a different major, but a strong interest in criminal justice and criminology. Students eager to accelerate their education and expand their career options also may choose to apply for the combined, five-year BS/MA program, leading to a Master of Arts (MA) in Criminal Justice and Criminology.

Classes for the undergraduate and graduate programs are held at Loyola's Lake Shore Campus. We look forward to considering your application for either undergraduate or graduate study at Loyola.
