What will a major in criminology prepare you to do? The liberal arts flavor of our criminology program will prepare you to write and communicate well, develop analytical and problem-solving skills, and other abilities which graduate schools and employers value.
You could build a career as a juvenile court caseworker or probation officer, or working with kids at risk. Crime prevention agencies attempt to develop and implement programs for families, schools and communities designed to reduce crime, and your skills would be a valuable asset in these efforts. If you feel strongly about making a difference, then hands-on work in a teen runaway shelter or domestic violence shelter may be appealing to you.
