The Criminal Justice program provides students with an education based in a liberal arts core and interdisciplinary criminal justice curriculum. The criminal justice aspect focuses on law, law enforcement, and corrections. It examines legal systems, the impact of crime, the criminal justice system’s role, and organization and techniques of applied criminal justice through a group of program and specialized elective courses, as well as a program of internship and independent study.
The program prepares students for continuing education in the field, as well as careers in the major institutions of criminal justice and law enforcement on a local, state and federal level. It also acquaints students with the growing career opportunities in the private security and investigation industries.
