The Criminal Justice program is broad-based and designed to equip the baccalaureate graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career in those areas directly or indirectly involved in the administration of justice.
The curriculum presents a systematic approach to the agencies, people, and processes involved in the American system of justice and, therefore, provides as well a firm foundation for those students wishing to pursue graduate studies.
Several systemic components comprise the curriculum in Criminal Justice: police, courts, corrections, and juvenile justice. Classroom instruction, coupled with directed study and field placement, provides the necessary mixture of theory and practice conducive to a meaningful learning experience.
