Overview

The program also recognizes and builds upon the interdisciplinary nature of the field it seeks to address.

Criminal Justice as a discipline draws together all the social and behavioral sciences, the natural sciences, the mathematical and computer sciences, as well as law and jurisprudence to focus on the problem of crime in society.

Indeed, accreditation guidelines for post-secondary criminal justice education programs clearly specify that the curricula "must give explicit recognition to the multi-disciplinary character of the field."
