Improving the Criminal Justice system is one of the most pressing social issues we face. If you’d like to be part of those changes, a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice (Honors) degree from the University of Michigan Flint will provide the skills you need.


Why Criminal Justice (Honors)?

Because Criminal Justice has so many facets, we use an interdisciplinary approach to help you understand real-world issues. You’ll learn how to apply critical thinking, a social justice perspective, and civic responsibility to your decision-making process–both in your career and your life. You’ll have opportunities to conduct research with faculty, connect with professionals in the community, build relationships with your peers in the Criminal Justice Club, and visit jails, prisons, juvenile detention facilities, and the courts.

To cap it off, you’ll have a chance to apply the skills you’ve learned through a world-class criminal justice internship right in Flint. We offer a variety of placements to match your interests:

  • 7th Judicial Circuit Court–Family Division
  • Genesee County Circuit Court
  • Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office
  • 67th District Court Probation Department
  • Flint Police Department
  • Michigan State Police
  • Flint Center for Civil Justice
  • Genesee County Sheriff’s Department

Throughout your University of Michigan Flint experience, you’ll benefit from small classes–usually between 10 and 30 students–and one-on-one interactions with faculty and staff. And since we realize our students have diverse life commitments, we offer a flexible schedule with many classes online or in the evening.
