035-best-colleges-2020-badgee.pngAs part of the website’s 2020 rankings of the Best Colleges for Earning Potential, the Saint Vincent College criminology, law and society program placed 24th nationally. Saint Vincent was one of just two Pennsylvania schools included in the top 25, and one of just four Catholic institutions listed. The rankings took into account tuition and graduates’ median salaries and debt.

Established in 2011, the criminology, law and society program at Saint Vincent College aspires to be much more than a traditional criminal justice major, giving students a solid foundation in the theoretical core of criminology, a thorough understanding of the legal system that enacts criminal laws and processes cases through the investigative, prosecutive and corrections phases and a broad, societal context for the criminal system that only a rigorous liberal arts regimen can supply.

Graduates of Saint Vincent College’s criminology, law and society program regularly go on to careers in law enforcement, corrections, probation and juvenile counseling, as well as successfully completing law school and graduate school at some of the top programs nationally.
