Overview

There’s crime scene analysis to do, but there’s interdisciplinary work as well, within political science, psychology and sociology courses that allow you to examine the global and domestic criminal justice issues of today.

If it’s that CSI stuff that stokes your passion, our crime lab and crime scene room give you the chance to learn forensic analysis skills in fingerprinting and blood splatter analysis, bullet trajectory research, and collection of crime scene evidence.

The faculty of the Criminal Justice program of Johnson & Wales University come from all aspects of the CJ system, from legislators and policy experts to police captains and detectives. Follow their lead towards careers in law enforcement, the court system, cyber and homeland security industries, counseling, advocacy and many more.
