Thank you for visiting the online home of the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. The department offers graduate and undergraduate programs in criminal justice, criminology, and cybercrime. There are several opportunities to conduct research with award winning faculty members, take part in experiential learning, and become engaged with the community. We have a nationally-recognized internship program with opportunities to work with several organizations and agencies including the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, The White House, and the Savannah-Chatham District Attorney’s Office.
