Criminal Justice Major


The Criminal Justice Major is recommended for students who seek an understanding of the criminal justice system. The major is not intended to serve as a professional training program; rather it is an academically centered major that focuses on the legal, ethical, administrative, and behavioral aspects of the criminal justice system and its various parts. There are 45 credits required to complete the criminal justice major (30 credits of required core courses and 15 credits of electives).
