About

Our Criminal Justice major at Point Park University is based upon the enforcement of the law, detection of crimes, investigation of crimes, prosecution of offenders and eventual sentencing of individuals convicted in the criminal justice system.

Overview

Unlike many other Criminal Justice programs which are centered in psychology or sociology, Point Park University's criminal justice curriculum is based upon the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act and integrates social sciences, behavioral sciences and humanities as part of its interdisciplinary program.

Our University's Downtown Pittsburgh location makes it easy for judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys and law enforcement officers to teach here. And there is no shortage of invaluable, career-focused internships and observations — from serving at Renewal, Inc., to meeting professionals from local Secret Service and FBI offices.

Career Options

Point Park University's criminal justice program prepares students for positions as professionals in more than 50 career fields related to criminal justice.
