Criminal Justice refers to the laws, procedures, institutions, and policies at play before, during, and after a crime. As a student in the Criminal Justice Area of Study, you will explore various types of crime, their investigation, prosecution and defense, courtroom rules and procedures, and many other areas involving the justice system.
The Criminal Justice Area of Study meets the necessary general education requirements and will expose you to specific criminal justice courses such as Introduction to Criminal Justice, Police Administration and Organization, Juvenile Justice, and Introduction to Corrections.
The knowledge gained from a Criminal Justice program prepares students to pursue a wide range of criminal justice careers in law enforcement, homeland security, law, court administration, corrections, and juvenile justice. Our courses will build a strong foundation for your bachelor’s degree and beyond. This is an excellent area of study if you plan to attend law school.
