The Heart of What We Do

Criminology and Justice

Also available online.

Keeping people safe. making the world a better place—these things are not as simple as putting those who break the law in jail.

Justice is more complex than that, and our system needs people who can study and maintain it. We want you to ask questions about our social structures as a whole—to understand not just the implications our constructs have on crime, but what we can change for the better.

Undergraduate Degrees

At Loyola, we’ll teach you to think critically about our current structures and policies, push for reform where we can be better, and continue working toward a more just world.
