Criminology is the study of crime at the individual and societal levels. Criminologist areas of study include crime prevention, criminal statistics, criminal behavior, juvenile crimes, domestic violence, assessment and evaluation of criminal agencies and criminology theory. There are several schools of thought concerning why crime exists and how it affects the society and individual. Criminology attempts to answer questions such as why do people commit crimes? Are criminals born or made? These fundamental questions guide criminal justice policies and procedures. Criminology schools in Colorado train students for successful careers in this growing field.
