Criminal Justice

Criminal justice is the study of theory and practice of the police, courts, and correctional institutions in the United States. It includes review and discussion of structures, processes, and relationships between various segments of the criminal justice system. The criminal justice major also prepares students for graduate-level study and for law school.
