Outstanding Penn undergraduates can be considered for a four-year B.A.-M.S. in the Criminology program. Interested students should refer to the College's website on Submatriculation.


After meeting with Dr. Gary Purpura, interested students should fill out a graduate application online and obtain at least two letters of recommendation, preferably from outside of the Criminology Department.

GRE scores and application fees are waived. 

Once the Department of Criminology receives your application, it is reviewed in tandem with the Graduate School admissions office.
