A gavel and scales rest upon law books on a desk.

The Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice explores the institutions involved in the administration of justice (e.g., policing, corrections) as well as a multidisciplinary examination into the social and psychological issues associated with criminal behavior and crime control. Students who are interested in why individuals commit crime, how governments respond to behaviors they deem undesirable, and the effects of the criminal justice system's actions on different communities will find the criminal justice major a perfect academic home. Graduates pursue careers in various aspects of public safety, private enterprise, social welfare, and law and graduate school.
