With a biblical cornerstone, the Criminal Justice major at Nyack College trains students to understand the legal, philosophical and moral foundations of the criminal justice system. Student are prepared to be community engagers as well as practitioners who seek to help and comfort.
The criminal justice program at Nyack is unique due to the emphasis on the restorative justice approach. Restorative justice is a philosophical framework which emphasizes the need to focus on the way in which crime harms relationships and communities. This framework is firmly rooted in the biblical principles of healing, restitution and reconciliation. The student’s educational experience culminates in a hands-on internship experience giving them the unique opportunity to gain practical experience, insight and skills into the criminal justice domain.
The degree provides a solid education on the current philosophical framework in criminal justice and prepares students for careers in the following areas: policing, probation and parole, corrections, private security, social welfare services, loss prevention, intelligence specialist, and court professionals.
