About the Program
Courses in the Criminal Justice program of Rutgers University deal with crime and other forms of deviance and the responses to these problems by police, courts, corrections, and other organizations; contemporary criminal justice issues; and ethical concerns and research. Students majoring in Criminal Justice receive excellent preparation for further study in graduate or professional schools as well as for careers in criminal justice.
The Rutgers School of Criminal Justice also offers an accelerated program (B.S./M.A.) that combines an undergraduate liberal arts education with professional study. Students from Rutgers University can participate in this program, focusing on their undergraduate studies during the first three years and spending the remainder of their time focusing on graduate studies.
