Understand Crime
and Learn to Keep Communities Safe

Modern law enforcement can help communities thrive and prosper—when backed by the latest techniques and skilled training.

Maryville University’s Criminal Justice / Criminology program prepares you for today’s modern careers in law enforcement, corrections and the justice system. We take an interdisciplinary approach, looking at crime as a social phenomenon and using data-driven approaches to predict it and prevent it.

The program offers hands-on experiential opportunities and a required senior-year practicum at one of dozens of social and protective services agencies throughout the St. Louis region.
