- 1. You can also explore the Dept
of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology (including links to course
descriptions). Find out about the program by looking at the Catalog
Description or the Program of Study I use for
graduation audits. There's also a Program of Study available in Adobe
Acrobat/pdf version by clicking here.
The Graduate School site has a Graduate
Student Orientation that's quite well done and has links to many of the
general resources about the university.
If you're wondering what you can do with a criminology degree, check out
the career and job hunting page.
2. Go to Admissions
for cost information and application forms. There's not a separate for for
Criminology - just put our program code on the application form. We do not ask
for letters of recommendation, although they are helpful if your GPA is less
You only need to take the GRE if
your GPA is below 2.5, in which case you need a score above the 60th percentile
for acceptance. Information on the GRE is available here.
The prerequisites for the program
include a B or better in Criminal Justice (system), Criminology (theory),
Statistics, and Research Methods. If you do not have all of these, you can still
be accepted but under a conditional status.
Send all material to
Graduate Admissions. Do not send anything to the Dept unless the advisor
specifically asks you for something.
3. Need financial aid information? There's some from
and more at the Office
of Financial Aid.

additional questions. (Please note that as of Jan '02 Roger Kern will be the
