The Philippine College of Criminology was founded on June 1, 1955 in answer to a public clamor of the need to update police performance. The first and second years Criminology Courses were given government recognition on June 1, 1955 and the third and fourth year courses on June 11, 1956.

Thereafter, on June 12, 1961, the school was granted government recognition to offer a one-year course leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Criminology.
