ASU's program in criminology and criminal justice is rooted in the study of the causes of crime and systemic responses to it. The core of our program focuses on the theories of criminality and evidence-based best practices for responding to crime through the lenses of three inter-related structures--policing, courts and corrections--which collectively comprise the criminal justice system. 

All of our lower-division courses are articulated with Arizona community colleges, making it easy for students to transfer from Pima Community College and Arziona Western College. Thus, transfer students will have substantial progress toward the completion of a degree in this field. 

To learn more about how you can enroll in the courses, please talk to a School of Criminology and Criminal Justice Academic Success Coordinator by calling (602) 496-2356 or email

A reminder

All colleges, schools, divisions, and departments establish certain academic requirements that must be met before a degree is granted. Advisors, directors, department chairs, and deans are available to help the student understand these requirements, but the student is responsible for fulfilling them. At the end of a student's course of study, if requirements for graduation have not been satisfied, the degree is not granted. For this reason, it is important for all students to acquaint themselves with all regulations, to be informed throughout their college careers, and to be responsible for completing all requirements.
