About

The Criminal Justice program at Worcester State University is an interdisciplinary major, predicated on a common core of the humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and physical sciences. 

Overview

The Criminal Justice program at Worcester State University aims to develop in students an increased analytical awareness of the role of law enforcement agencies, courts, and correctional institutions in the criminal justice system. The curriculum includes course work to provide students with awareness of recent advances in human dynamics, civil rights legislation and information technology.
