About the course
Welcome to the Criminology program at the College at Florham The Department of Social Sciences & History is now pleased to offer a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology. Criminology is the study of the root causes of crime and deviant behavior in society. Early criminologists believed that crime was a choice based on an individuals free will, but the field expanded to include biological, psychological and sociological explanations of crime. Poverty, family structure, and capitalism are among some of the widely debated root causes of crime. Criminologists consider what motivates offenders as well as the impact of crime on victims and society as a whole. By studying the causes of crime, criminologists can offer practical solutions to reduce or even prevent certain types of crime. Criminologists have been instrumental in evaluating criminal justice policies such as Megans Laws, mandatory sentencing for drug offenders and Three Strikes laws. Our courses also focus on national and international systems of law, comparative punishment and the administration of justice, and the various mechanisms of law enforcement and control at the local, state, federal and international levels. Additional courses we offer focus on international social and political problems which underlie current issues in international criminal law.
