A major in criminal justice offers outstanding academic preparations for careers in criminal justice agencies (law enforcement, corrections, juvenile justice, etc.) and beyond. The Department of Criminal Justice and Sociology prepares students to contribute to the pressing social problems in the areas of crime prevention, protection and rehabilitation. A college degree is becoming necessary to advance in today’s criminal justice careers.
The degree in criminal justice has two tracks: An Academic University track and a Law Enforcement Academy track. The Academic/University track is for those seeking a traditional, university degree in criminal justice. It gives a theoretical understanding of crime and the criminal justice system. The Law Enforcement Academy track is for those seeking specialized law enforcement training.
Standard University admission requirements apply to this degree.
