BA - Criminal Justice

Program Number: 0573

The criminal justice major allows students to tailor their focus of study to prepare them for career opportunities in any area of public service, including probation and parole, corrections, courts, public administration, policing, criminal investigation and prosecution, victim advocacy, delinquency, etc..

Courses in criminal justice also develop a student’s ability to read analytically, think critically, and communicate professionally.  This knowledge is supplemented with skill development in basic statistics, research and writing, and applied ethics in order to provide graduates with enhanced strength in the area of communication and quantitative analysis.  This background also prepares students to continue their education at the professional and graduate school level.
