Welcome to Criminal Justice
Criminal Justice is an exciting major allowing for a wide range of steadily growing employment opportunities. With classes in subjects including Criminology, Policing, Courts, and Corrections, students will build a solid footing in the core of the criminal justice system. Students will be able to explore courses on Drugs and Crime, Serial Murder, Media and Crime, Victimology, and more. The Criminal Justice program also maintains a robust internship program that allows students to experience many of the agencies involved in the criminal justice system. These internships allow for a unique opportunity to interact with criminal justice professionals as they perform their daily duties and help students gain experience in the field.
Careers include law enforcement on the state, local, and federal levels, positions in the field of corrections, positions within the court system, and positions in probation and parole. In addition to immediately entering the job market our students receive a foundational education that allows them to apply for law school or graduate program admission.
