UA Produces 73 New RCrims

University of Antique College of Criminal Justice Education Department (CCJE) produces 73 New Registered Criminologists (RCrim) during the Criminologist Licensure Examination conducted on December 4-6, 2022.

On the data published by the Philippine Regulation Comission (PRC), out of 73 passers from UA, 64 are first takers and 9 are repeaters garnering a 33.18 national passing percentage.

Dr. Elden John D. Aurillo, Dean of CCJE, stated on an interview the struggles that they went through and the efforts that they continuously exert for the College to reach the national passing percentage that they are aiming.

“When the Bachelor of Science in Criminology was separated from College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) we intensified our campaign to improve the quality of graduates. We included Criminology review in our curriculum, and when I was the program head of Criminology when we are still under CAS, I submitted a proposal to the board for approval of the implementation of the Admission and Retention Policy so that we can properly screen our students,” Dr. Aurillo further stated.

Dr. Aurillo congratulated the passers and extended his gratitude to the faculty for serving their duty with heart and compassion, and to the administration for the support and trust given to the college.

The Criminology board exam was conducted at several testing centers located at NCR, Antique, Baguio, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cauayan, Cebu, Davao, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Kidapawan, Koronadal, Legaspi, Lucena, Pagadian, Palawan, Pampanga, Rosales, San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, Tacloban, Tuguegarao, Zamboanga./IAP
