Criminology and Criminal Justice Program

Study Criminology at A&M-SA

Welcome to the Criminology and Criminal Justice Program at Texas A&M-San Antonio!  We currently have 8 full-time faculty, along with one administrative assistant, as well as many practicing criminal justice professionals that teach for us on a part-time basis. The faculty bring depth in knowledge to the classroom based on a wide range of expertise in areas such as juvenile justice, policing, corrections, courts and the legal system.

With the BAAS degree option, students may obtain credit for up to 18 hours of coursework based on specialized training and certifications such as T.C.O.L.E. Although the B.S. track is the most popular of the two, both degree options provide students with a thorough grounding in the major substantive areas of our discipline. The combined enrollment of our undergraduate programs is one of largest at the university with approximately 575 students. We recently launched a Master of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice online program this fall with over 40 students in the inaugural cohort.

Our CCJS faculty are dedicated scholars who have diverse research interests in areas such as policing, offender-decision making, problem-solving courts, effects of solitary confinement, offender rehabilitation, immigration policy and much more.

Our faculty enjoy mentoring students on research projects, supervising student internships with local criminal justice agencies, and providing them with experiential opportunities for a real-world perspective of our criminal justice system. For example, this fall Dr. Michael Proctor will take a group of students to visit the Walls Unit in Huntsville to take a tour of death row.

I encourage you to explore our faculty web pages for more information about faculty research interests and their backgrounds. If I can be of any assistance or answer questions you have about our programs, please feel free to contact me or come by the main office in CAB 348. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
