Bachelor of Science- Justice Studies: Criminal Justice Emphasis

The Criminal Justice emphasis allows students who are more interested in law enforcement, corrections, and other law related careers to pursue their interests within the Justice Studies major.  Our Criminal Justice emphasis gives students a substantive base of criminal justice experience such as interviewing and interrogation while building on the Justice Studies major that emphasizes critical thinking skills, ability to handle statistical data, and student understanding of the broader meanings and practice of justice.  This emphasis is not designed to be the equivalent of police academy training rather it will allow students whose career interests are oriented toward law related careers to pursue their goal within a broad liberal arts approach to justice.
