Criminal Justice examines the structure, functions, and decision-making processes of agencies that deal with crime and criminal offenders. The program provides students with a solid foundation in theory and research. Furthermore, majors receive hands-on experience with our state-of-the-art firearms simulation lab, and in our crime scene investigation, fingerprinting, and mock trial courses. Advanced students have the opportunity to present their research at state and national conferences and to participate in scholarship, research paper and crime scene competitions. A variety of internships are also available for those who qualify. Faculty in this program provide expertise in law enforcement, investigations, corrections, criminal law and theory.
Students with a Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice qualify for employment in city, county, state, and federal criminal justice agencies, and in the rapidly-growing private industrial security field. A number of graduates continue their education in graduate programs in criminal justice, criminology or law.
