Making a Difference

Due in part to increased security after 9/11 and advances in technology, both law enforcement and the private sector security continue to be two of the fastest-growing fields of the 21st century. If you are passionate about problem-solving and making a difference, criminal justice could be the major for you. As a criminal justice major at Pace, you will leverage your outstanding analytical skills while feeding your natural curiosity.

  • Faculty members are established leaders in their fields and bring practical experience into the classroom. Student-faculty interaction becomes more intensive as you progress through the program.

  • Criminal justice majors have many opportunities to intern with various local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies, such as with the US Marshals, local prosecutors, and juvenile justice agencies.
