A system of criminal justice must meet the needs of each citizen as well as the needs of complex social, economic and governmental institutions. The Bachelor of Arts degree program in criminal justice was developed with these needs in mind and is appropriate for both career-bound pre-service students and in-service personnel in law enforcement, probation, parole, corrections, social service agencies and related areas.

In addition, the program is designed to provide students with an appropriate academic background for continuing their graduate studies in criminal justice, criminology or other areas such as law.

The criminal justice major is an interdisciplinary program with enough flexibility to permit students to pursue their own interests. For example, students wishing to emphasize law enforcement may select appropriate courses within the major. Students directed toward probation, parole or corrections work are advised to select courses accordingly.

Crime Analysis is a rapidly growing field offering exciting employment opportunities. Increasingly, criminal justice agencies--at the local and state level--are hiring people with advance analytic and technological capabilities. The drive to engage in more proactive, evidence-based policing founded upon sound analysis is a national trend that is unlikely to slow. Courses are organized into several tracks allowing students to specialize in specific analytic techniques (i.e. geographic analysis or network analysis). In addition to research-based instruction, students are offered a range of elective subject areas, from cyber-security to gang prevention strategies, to enhance the practice utility of this program option.
