About

The department's two undergraduate tracks, criminal justice major and law and justice specialization, are not intended to serve as applied professional training programs; rather, they are academically centered programs that focus on the legal, ethical, administrative, theoretical and behavioral aspects of the justice system and its various parts, as identified in the department's student learning outcomes and objectives.

Both programs stress the importance of research, critical thinking and writing skills essential for criminal justice and justice-related careers in today's society.

The criminal justice major broadly focuses on the various components of the criminal justice system, criminological theory, and issues of diversity, mythology, and ethics. Students attracted to the program are interested in a variety of careers including criminal justice, behavioral science, politics and treatment services.
