About

Want to learn how to catch the bad guys? Studying this Criminal Justice program at The University of Alabama at Birmingham we’ll show you how to increase your expertise in forensics, information security, cyber crime investigation, and more.

Overview

To prepare you for your career, we'll train you in subjects such as policy, administration, research methods and statistics, patterns in crime, and criminological theory. We'll also ask you to choose one of two tracks. 

The thesis track program is better if you want to pursue a doctoral-level degree in criminology, criminal justice, or a related field. With this option, you'll need to complete a thesis project under the supervision of a faculty advisor. The non-thesis track is more geared toward working professionals. It's available completely online—perfect if you can't attend classes on campus. 

This track will give you advanced training in areas such as research methods, program evaluation, and policy analysis. With this option, you'll be required to complete a demonstration project, and you'll be strongly encouraged to complete a field placement or internship.
