The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice offers the Bachelor of Arts degree
through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Honors College.
The study of crime and justice is complex as researchers, practitioners, and policy
makers tackle issues of policing strategies, corrections, capital punishment, violence,
gangs, addiction, and international crime. The University of Memphis emphasizes research,
scholarship, service and community outreach.
Our faculty provides outstanding instruction on the causes of crime, intervention
strategies, program evaluation and issues of social justice. Members of our faculty
have received national recognition for their work, obtained a wide range of research
grants, engaged in national and international outreach and service, and have won a
number of teaching, research, and advising awards at the University.
Students may take all their classes online, or they may combine online classes with
those offered on the University of Memphis campus. For information on the required
