Offering a bachelor degree, the curriculum is broadly interdisciplinary in nature, combining the study of the humanities, law, natural, behavioral and social sciences, and seeks to balance theoretical inquiry with applied knowledge. Off-campus internships are an important part of the degree programs, providing students with first-hand knowledge of the criminal justice system. Students interested in forensics may also want to pursue our forensic psychology minor.
Upon completion of the program, you will be prepared for a career in law enforcement, corrections, probation and parole and the related field of industrial and institutional security, including working with juveniles. The program also lays the groundwork for law school and post-graduate programs in criminal justice.
