Criminology at the Mount

At Mount Saint Mary College, Criminology isn't a passive learning of crime and laws; rather, it is a service-oriented major of understanding crime with the mission to change society from that knowledge.

Specialize your degree

Mount Criminology students can choose to concentrate in four different areas:

  • General
  • Criminal Justice System
  • Juvenile Justice
  • Restorative Justice

Make your degree even more marketerable with an internship at a local agency, such as the New York State Police, New York State Office of Children and Family Services, and Orange County Probation/Parole.
