Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice program prepares students for service and/or graduate study in a diversity of criminal justice and related fields through its commitment to professional criminal justice values and ethics. Students will prepare for responsible citizenship, understand the interdisciplinary nature of the field, and develop a comprehensive understanding of crime and the criminal justice system by integrating the Christian world view, through a Restorative Justice perspective and a strong liberal arts foundation, within an analytical and conceptual framework.

Students are encouraged to participate in research projects, conferences, and internships during their time in the program.  Many students have researched topics of interest and presented their research at professional conferences with faculty supervision.

The Criminal Justice major prepares students for entry-level positions in the field, including the areas of judicial services, law enforcement, adult and juvenile probation, adult and juvenile correctional institutions, adult and juvenile parole supervision, victim assistance programs and community-based rehabilitation agencies.
