Criminal Justice



Criminal Justice


The Criminal Justice Bachelor of Science provides a comprehensive understanding of the components of the American Criminal Justice system.  It is a dynamic major that responds to issues of diversity, as well as innovations and changes in the social and technological arenas, which inform criminal justice professionals.  The Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice focuses on the institutions of criminal justice: particularly theory, police, courts, corrections, and law.  Such focus will be achieved while addressing issues of diversity, including race, gender and ethnicity, as appropriate.  It will attract current and future professionals in various law enforcement, judicial or correctional agencies at the local, state and federal level.  While the major prepares students for careers in the field of criminal justice and encourages internship experience, it also provides an academic foundation for students who plan to attend graduate or professional schools.
