Alex Smith Award for Excellence in Criminology 

In honor of Alex Smith, an esteemed professor emeritus, the Alex Smith Award for Excellence in Criminology is given to the outstanding graduating criminology major. 

Career Suggestions 

The criminology major offers students an interesting way to link academic work in college with potential careers in criminal justice, including police, probation, parole, corrections, courts, victims and juvenile service agencies and security in the private and public sectors. In addition to careers related to criminal justice, the criminology major, as a liberal arts major, is an excellent choice for individuals unsure about their career interests, who have interests outside criminal justice, or are thinking about graduate school or law school. Criminology majors are able to pursue the same range of careers in business or public service as students, who major in fields such as psychology, sociology or anthropology.
