Student Success Profile

"The Criminology program at Mount Aloysius College is a very well-developed program. It is interactive and has professors that have experienced first-hand what they are teaching. Because of this, good stories come with each of the classes, which is a unique part of the program. Hands on scenarios also help enhance the classes and learning process, which I like a lot. They help you really think as if you were in that field and help you to understand what you will encounter in the real world. The classes are all really different and all offer something for everyone." Pam Young, Criminology Major
