Criminology, Law and Society

Our combination of size, intellectual diversity, and strong specialty areas, plus the ambience of a university community, makes the University of Florida an ideal setting in which to pursue advanced training in criminology or law and society.

The department offers graduate study in Criminology, Law and Society (CLS) leading to an M.A. degree, a Ph.D. degree, and a joint M.A./J.D. degree. Graduate education typically involves training in both crime and justice and law and society. There are 12 criminologists appointed to the graduate faculty of the CLS program.
