As already stated, PhD programs are going to present a more specialized area of focus than you would find in a bachelors, or even masters level curriculum. For example, the PhD program in criminal justice at Berkeley in California is a Doctorate in Jurisprudence and Social Policy. If you look at the title further, however, it is clear that the degree title still adds up to be under the umbrella of criminal justice. Jurisprudence is related to law, and we already covered the fact that criminology is derived from the study of sociology. Policy is a very common term used in higher degree programs, because many people who obtain PhD are interested in formulating, researching or influencing social or public policy.
