The criminal justice major is an interdisciplinary program of study stressing knowledge of theory and practice. It emphasizes a comprehensive understanding of both criminal behavior and the criminal justice system as basic preparation for careers in such fields as corrections, human services, research and planning, and law enforcement. An internship in a criminal justice agency is an integral part of the major, which enables students to add practical experience to their academic programs.
