Within a Christ-centered liberal arts curriculum, the aim of the Criminal Justice program is to provide students with a strong foundation in the study of criminology, including criminal law, legal systems, corrections, and policing. This program will prepare students to enter advanced programs in legal studies and law enforcement and for allied careers in the criminal justice field.
Students pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice need to complete the core program courses, as well as some strongly recommended General Education courses. Additionally, students should have skills in word processing, as well as proficiency using spreadsheets and databases.
