Criminal Justice at Messiah College 

Restorative justice is at the heart of the criminal justice major at Messiah College.

The criminal justice program at Messiah College will equip you to be an agent of social change and will encourage you to actively work toward what one sociologist calls “the good society.” Study the causes and responses to crime and the many criminology theories associated with it.

In this liberal arts and professional major, you also will study issues related to crime and justice from the restorative justice perspective and will grow in how you think about responsible citizenship. Steeped in biblical principles, restorative justice seeks healing, wholeness and reconciliation for all parties touched by crime.
