What interests you? Crime and justice? Serial killers and CSI? Policing? A program that prepares you for careers with agencies as wide-ranging as the US Forestry Service and the National Security Agency? A program that easily blends with not only social science programs like psychology or political science, but also with the natural sciences, computer science, and information systems?

If that sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place!

Are you an undergraduate student who is looking to make the most of your time at UAB? To be taught by, to study with, and be mentored by nationally and internationally renowned faculty members? To intern with NCIS, the FBI, or Disney? Then check out our bachelor of science in criminal justice program. And if you’re really into the idea of working one-on-one with a faculty mentor on a research project, learn more about our Honors Program in criminal justice!

Or maybe you’ve been out of college and working for a while and want to advance your career through graduate studies. Perhaps you are looking to develop an entirely new skill set or you want to connect with people in a host of criminal justice and ancillary agencies. If that is you, check out our graduate and certificate programs!
