About The Program

The program examines complex and controversial real-world criminal justice issues. Students will analyze the operations and administration of criminal justice institutions in the context of public discourse, apply theories related to policies and practices, and understand the mechanisms, dynamics, and situational context of crime and criminal behavior and methods of prevention and treatment.

Job opportunities include local, state, and federal enforcement officers, police officers, private or government investigators, adult/juvenile correction officers, probation/parole officers and counselors, security directors (managers), loss prevention directors, classification managers, and personnel clearance administrators.
