The Department of Criminal Justice educates students in the theoretical, practical and empirical aspects of criminal justice in preparation for professional service in both governmental and private entities and in preparation for graduate studies.

Criminal justice faculty come from a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds reflecting the breadth of the criminal justice discipline, and they enhance the instructional process through their own research activities.

The department works with criminal justice agencies and organizations to promote knowledge and understanding of the people, processes and practices relevant to this dynamic field of study.

Undergraduate majors take a series of core criminal justice courses that provide a foundation regarding the key components of the criminal justice system, including law enforcement, criminal law, corrections, research methods and criminological theory. Students expand their knowledge in these areas and customize their curriculum by selecting from a broad range of criminal justice electives such as those regarding juvenile justice, computer crime and victimology. Internship and study abroad opportunities are available. Both campus-based and online criminal justice courses are offered.
