Overview

The Criminal Justice program of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University allows students to draw upon areas of study such as criminology, forensic science, law and criminal justice, and the sociology of deviance. Students are able to choose a number of core and elective units that examine criminal law and procedures, policing, prisons and punishment, forensic science, transnational organized crime, theories of crime, rural crime, crime prevention, Indigenous over-representation and juvenile delinquency. The degree also offers students the opportunity to undertake training in research methods and provides hands-on-experience within the criminal justice system. Criminal Justice graduates can seek employment in a wide-range of sectors, including: border control, correctional facilities, crime prevention agencies, government and policy agencies, intelligence and security, juvenile justice, police service and welfare.

Our graduates are prepared for a wide range of careers (almost too numerous to mention here!) in the criminal justice arena at the local, county, state, and federal levels, as well as numerous opportunities in the private sector. Many graduates go on to law school or graduate school. Graduates can also be found working in the social welfare field, business, and in regulatory agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, among other areas.
