Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Criminology is the social-scientific study of crime, including the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency. Courses in the program help students develop a structural perspective which in turn lets them understand crime, law, and society more broadly and critically. The criminology major prepares students for further academic study and/or employment in the fields of parole and probation careers, criminal justice employment as well as law school. Information about career options for criminology majors is offered by the American Sociological Association and the American Society of Criminology.

Closely aligned with the sociology program, this criminology program is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts in Criminology from CNM. It will also prepare a student to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology or Sociology from a 4-year college or university. Students will develop critical thinking skills through comparison of major theories in the field, analysis of crime trends, and evaluation of the criminal justice system.

Special Requirements:

In addition to the UNM criminology requirements shown in the term-by-term outline, students can transfer six credit hours of CNM sociology courses listed on the UNM approved electives list for criminology majors; these include SOC 2211 Social Problems, SOC 2213 Deviant Behavior, and SOC 2216 Ethnic and Minority Groups. CNM sociology courses not listed here transfer to UNM as electives. The UNM Department of Sociology will accept 6 credit hours from CNM’s Criminal Justice program (courses with a CJ prefix); the hours will transfer as electives for UNM criminology majors. The Criminal Justice (CJ) credit hours do not count toward the CNM Liberal Arts degree.

Graduates who intend to work in the field of law enforcement may wish to check agency requirements.

Educational Opportunities

This program listed is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts in Criminology from CNM and prepare a student to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology at University of New Mexico. However, students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. Criminology majors interested in transfer to UNM should consult the UNM Sociology Department. Students should always refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for admission, program, course, and graduation requirements. College catalogs are generally available online. Students should also consult a faculty advisor and/or an Academic Coach with CNM Connect Services.
