About

The Criminal Justice Studies program at Bellarmine University prepares students for careers and graduate work in the field of criminal justice by grounding their education in a broad liberal arts perspective on crime and society. 

Overview

In addition to giving students research skills, theoretical insights, and practical experiences in the real world where these skills and insights can be applied, the program emphasizes an interdisciplinary perspective in understanding crime. Two required internships help ground the student in the real world of criminal and legal issues. The program includes a social justice perspective on the understanding of crime and society.

The Criminal Justice Studies program at Bellarmine University has classes that provide practical and “hands-on” knowledge, selected humanities courses in philosophy, psychology, literature, and drama provide interpretations of issues involving crime and society that can only be found in a true liberal arts education.
