The concentration in criminal justice at Saint Martin's University offers courses leading to both the major and a minor. In addition to more traditional coursework addressing the police, corrections and the courts, SMU students can broaden their perspective through a wide range of specialty courses, including:

  • Victimology
  • Drugs and society
  • Social justice
  • Deviant behavior
  • Juvenile justice and rehabilitation
  • Forensics
  • Restorative justice

Pursue issues and interests in depth

SMU criminal justice participants study with professionals working in the field, as well as with our regular faculty. Students gain hands-on experience during internships within agencies that form part of the criminal justice system. The capstone experience allows students to identify and pursue a contemporary issue of significant and substantial concern.

Prepare to meet society's challenges

Whether in traditional courses, internship placements, or independent study, the Criminal Justice Program at Saint Martin's fosters intellectual growth, academic discipline, effective oral and written expression, and critical understanding of the social forces that form the criminal justice system.
