The Criminal Justice League

The Criminal Justice League at the University of Washington Tacoma wishes to provide involvement for criminal justice majors and minors in the criminal justice community to obtain a better understanding of how to provide quality interaction, support, and well-being for victims, offenders, criminal justice professionals, and family members who have been affected by the criminal justice system. Tarna Derby-McCurtain is the faculty advisor.

Sign up for the Criminal Justice email list

UWTCJ is an electronic mailing list for current Criminal Justice students. This email list will provide you with reminders of upcoming deadlines, registration information, job and internship opportunities, special events, graduation information and more. Once admitted to the Criminal Justice Program, students are automatically subscribed to the listserv, prior to the quarter of admission.

Advising and degree planning

You are encouraged to use the online Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) to check on progress toward your degree. DARS is a useful tool but it should not replace one-on-one degree planning with an advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
