Criminal Justice at UW Oshkosh


UWO’s Criminal Justice Department offers a Major and Minor in Criminal Justice.  The criminal justice curriculum for the major is designed to prepare students for careers in many professions related to crime and justice (criminal justice careers).  Courses focusing on law, corrections, policing and criminology teach students about the complexities associated with the criminal justice process and crime analysis.  In addition to this course work, criminal justice students have the opportunity to learn outside the classroom through criminal justice internships at a variety of criminal justice agencies.  And, since our criminal justice major includes a focus on criminological theory, research methodology, statistical analysis, and law, graduates earn a criminal justice education that will have prepared them to pursue advanced degrees in the fields of Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Law.
