  • What Can I Do With a Major in Criminology, Law and Society?

    Eric Kocian Teaches CriminologyThe ambitious scope of this program reflects the fact that the criminal justice system invites professionals of varying interests and talents to contribute in many ways to the cause of justice. It is an enterprise in which legislators, judges, lawyers, investigators, criminalists, corrections officials, parole/probation officers, agency administrators and academics who study the system in macro terms all play a role. CLS becomes a platform from which graduates may pursue law school, graduate school, a career in high-level federal and state law enforcement agencies, positions as a probation/parole officer, assistant warden or warden in the corrections system, or a professional position in any field in which critical analytical skills, professional writing proficiency and administrative prowess are valued.
