IMG 8070 resizedThe curriculum in Criminal Justice offers a series of courses that examine the individual components and interrelationship of law enforcement, corrections and the courts. This curriculum builds upon the strong liberal arts foundation of the University's general education requirements to prepare students with the skills in leadership, communication and critical thinking necessary in the field of criminal justice today. The core requirements are designed to emphasize a holistic approach to criminal justice and  provide in-depth study of theory and application. Within the core requirements and the interdisciplinary component, the interrelationship of criminal justice with the study of psychology and sociology is reinforced. Students are able to choose from an array of electives both within the major as well as in related fields of study based upon interest and career path.
