Students will gain the ability to understand social policy, to critically assess proposed programs, and to recognize the complexity of crime-related issues, creating solutions, rather than relying on failed programs of the past. Criminology majors explore theoretical causes of crime, as well as practically apply concepts learned to real world situations in advanced courses.
Students analyze situations, evaluate their causes, and recommend solutions. Criminology majors gain skills in analytical and critical thinking in understanding human behavior at the individual, group and societal levels, as well as competency in addressing cultural and social issues and solving crime problems. The criminology experience focuses on engaged, active, and service learning in diverse applications both in and out of the classroom, offering students opportunities to become involved in community and campus projects and programs; research projects; the use of instructional technology including data management and data analysis; group projects, discussions and presentations; and internships.
Located in the City of Lakeland, near the county seat in Bartow, Florida, and within driving distance of Orlando and Tampa, FSC is perfectly situated for criminal justice internships at the local, state and federal level.
The mission of Florida Southern College is to prepare students through dynamic engaged learning to make a positive and consequential impact on society.
