Course Information

Criminal Justice Program and Degree Overview

Our qualified and devoted faculty whose educational, career and research backgrounds are directly related to the interests and needs of those pursuing an interdisciplinary degree. Our courses will allow students to critically analyze how institutions that deal with issues of Criminal Justice impede and promote social justice.

Most courses for the Criminal Justice program derive from sociology and political science. Students are required to take courses that set the foundation and build upon their theoretical background, research methodology and practical application of criminal justice issues.

To fulfill the remaining requirements, students can choose from many different electives that focus on areas of emphasis such as Sociology of Corrections, Law & Society, or Procedural Criminal Law. Students specifically interested in designing a pre-law course of study should consult with their academic advisor.
