Bachelor of Arts in Criminology is approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). This program is for students who wish to pursue a career in Law and other related fields.
Bachelor of Arts in Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behavior. Because crime is a core societal issue, criminologists examine society’s response to crime and the role of the state in crime prevention and enforcement. It is not always easy to understand why people commit crimes, what an appropriate punishment may be or how laws impact the prevention of crime. Criminologists study all of these issues and more. Criminology is an interdisciplinary degree that borrows from the disciplines of sociology, law, political science, history and psychology, among others.
We look for applicants who are curious, determined and creative. We take into account special talents or successes that might not appear on a transcript. If this sounds like you, choose APU.
