How many credits is needed to obtain a degree in criminology?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A bachelor's degree in most areas can require between 120 to 128 college credits particular to a specific program of study. This would be based on a college or university that operates on a regular two semester academic year which is the most common. For institutions that operate on a tri-semester or quarter-semester it would be quite different. That being said, the Bachelor's degree - in most cases - is designed as a four year program of study, provided the student is full-time and follows their chosen program of study as prescribed by the college or university, and also provided the individual does not require prerequisite or developmental coursework as a result of basic skills testing. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is no less than 12 credits per semester. However, to complete the degree within the four years, a credit load of approximately 15 to 18 credits is recommended. For individuals who work or who have other responsibilities that would prohibit them from attending full-time, completion of the degree may take twice as long. Still, some of this time can be cut down by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions. In addition, the bachelors and associate degrees are referred to as undergraduate degrees while the masters and doctorate degrees referred to as graduate degrees.

How do you earn a degree in criminology?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I was actually just researching this for myself, as I too, am interested in what it requires to become a criminologist.

First off, you must earn a bachelor's degree in either psychology or sociology. They say you can earn one for criminal justice, but the prior two options are better. They also stress that it's important for you to take classes in statistics, computer science, and writing. As a lot of work is figuring out patterns of crimes/criminals, and writing about your research.

If you would like to go higher up, it's important to get you Master's in psychology or sociology, and if you would eventually like to teach, to receive your Doctorate.

Remember, the first few years of being a criminologist is office work. Eventually, you will earn your way to going to crime scenes, autopsies, etc. (If that is what you would like to do). Also, remember that this is an extremely competitive field, but well worth it if you're willing to work.

Average annual income for a criminologist with a Bachelor's Degree is: $30,000.

Average annual income for a criminologist with a Master's Degree is: $55,000.

CRIMINOLOGY is the entire body of knowledge regarding crimes, criminals, and the effort of the society to prevent and suppress them. It is also the study of crime as a social phenomenon. It includes within its scope the making of laws, the breaking of laws, and the reaction toward the breaking of laws. Criminologists attempt to figure out the way criminals think to prevent their actions.
