As an undergraduate or graduate student in Criminal Justice Studies you will join a distinguished program whose faculty are known for studying, teaching and leading research on the latest criminal justice issues while preparing and producing leaders of criminal justice agencies across the country.

Our bachelor of arts in criminal justice exposes students to all aspects of crime and criminal justice through courses on crime and other deviance and the responses of police, courts, corrections and other organizations. You'll explore contemporary criminal justice issues and ethical concerns. Students are prepared for graduate studies or professional schools as well as for careers in criminal justice.

We offer two graduate programs that study the larger context of crime, why it exists and its impact on society, and provide a detailed understanding of the concept of justice and how it’s applied.

Our extensive Student Opportunities and Resources help you navigate our popular online and on-campus programs. We operate a Criminal Justice Advising Center, offer scholarships and help with internships and jobs and preparation for your required senior thesis.
