Criminal Justice

US Supreme Court building

Criminal justice studies the problem of crime, its causes and its control.

The curriculum is broad-based and multidisciplinary, focusing on the organization, processes and policies of the criminal justice system. It also covers theories of crime and social control, research and evaluation skills in policy analysis, and issues in organization and management.

Criminal justice is offered as a minor and as an area of concentration for the B.A. in Social sciences.

Through the program you will gain broad exposure in the areas of social sciences that are preferred by governmental and private agencies. If you are thinking of going on to graduate education or law school, you will find the criminal justice program highly relevant.
