The study of criminal justice
The criminal justice major is an interdisciplinary, liberal arts
oriented, social science program designed to prepare candidates for
positions in the criminal justice field and to provide a solid background
for further education in graduate or law school.
Criminal justice majors at the University can elect to participate in an
internship program that will give them an opportunity to put theory learned
in the classroom into practice. The program enables students to participate
in an internship program with criminal justice agencies or related agencies
such as law enforcement juvenile and adult correction law offices, judges
and the State Attorney General's Office.
The criminal justice program provides:
- A strong liberal arts background that broadens career and
- Small classes, enabling students to receive individual attention.
- A faculty experienced as educators.
- A rigorous educational environment in which faculty members work
closely with students.
