Criminology schools in Nebraska offer students the education required to secure a long-term career in the field of criminology. Criminology differs from the commonly sought after field of criminal justice, in that it focuses on the mind and thoughts of the criminal and less on the criminal justice system and processes. Criminology degrees vary depending on the length of time the student desires to spend in school. A two-year associate’s degree is available as well as a four-year bachelor’s and six-year master’s degree. Courses taken in the criminology program include criminal law, theories of crime, research methods, criminal behavior, criminal minds and thoughts, and case study analysis.
