The Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice provides a strong liberal arts and social science base integrating theory and practice through a melding of criminology and criminal justice disciplines. The program’s major advantage is its practical orientation with the availability of up to eighteen credits of field experience. The degree prepares students for many federal, state and local law enforcement positions as well as criminal justice social service occupations and admission to law school.

In our program, students will study all aspects of crime and societal reactions to crime. You’ll examine the political, economic, and cultural patterns that shape definitions and theories of crime and influence the policy choices about how to respond to certain categories of crime. You’ll also study social and personal forces that lead to criminal conduct, and analyze the organization and operation of crime control systems. Particular emphasis is placed on the interactions among the many agencies which comprise criminal justice systems and on the relationships between these systems and other facets of society. Our students have the opportunity to complete an internship with a criminal justice agency during senior year and are required to participate in service learning experiences in several courses.
