Criminal Justice (CRIMJ) - (ARCHIVE)

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR CAROL R. NECHEMIAS, School of Public Affairs

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Criminal Justice helps provide its graduates with the communications and analytical skills critical to succeed in criminal justice and related careers. Through an interdisciplinary approach to the problems of crime and society, the program equips students to pursue graduate study in criminal justice or related disciplines, and educates students to become effective problem-solvers as professionals in the field of criminal justice.

The study of criminal justice is approached as an applied interdisciplinary science, teaching students the practical aspects of crime control and the administration of justice. The Criminal Justice program is designed for students who come from other institutions and targets the needs of students who hold an associate degree in Police Science or Criminal Justice, or those who hold an associate of arts degree.

The Criminal Justice curriculum is structured to provide maximum flexibility, enabling students to take advantage of the vast array of career opportunities available in the field today. After completing general education requirements and core degree requirements, students arrange a plan of study in these general areas: law enforcement, jurisprudence, corrections, and research and planning. Criminal Justice majors can participate in a one-semester internship in a criminal justice agency after completing appropriate course work at an acceptable level of performance.
