Criminal Justice Admission Requirements
Main page content
► The Criminal Justice degree offers a multidisciplinary understanding of crime and justice within the framework of broader social processes within our society.
The program examines all major aspects of the justice system from an ecological systems approach rather than a specialization in one narrow content area. The curriculum provides a theoretical understanding of the discipline, combined with an understanding of the scientific method as it applies to criminal justice.
