The BS degree in Victim Studies is a multidisciplinary degree consisting of courses from the College of Criminal Justice, Political Science, Business, and Psychology. This degree prepares students to work in various settings with victims of crime. Similar to our BS degree in Criminal Justice, the BS in Victim Studies requires the core courses, criminal justice and social science electives, and additional hours of social science (a selection from Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Philosophy).
What makes the BS degree different from the BA degree are the additional course requirements. While the BS requires social science, the BA degree requires foreign language. For a complete list of degree requirements see our catalog or come visit the College of Criminal Justice Advisement Center - located near the lobby in the George J. Beto Criminal Justice Center.
