Criminal justice is both a professional and a liberal arts program. Specifically, the criminal justice major consists of three components: non-criminal justice courses (corequisites), many in related liberal arts disciplines, which can be taken during the first two years of college; criminal justice proficiency courses; and criminal justice electives, which can be grouped into specialty areas or not, at the student’s option.
Students seeking acceptance into the criminal justice major must meet the following criteria:
Application by Brockport students for the major will ordinarily be made during the fall semester of the sophomore year.
Students in the Criminal Justice major pursue a Bachelor of Science degree, and must complete the corresponding degree's requirements.
An approved ethnic minorities course. (3 credits)
Two upper-division (300/400 level) courses, chosen from TWO of the following three disciplines: sociology, psychology or political science. (6 credits)
AND ONE of the following:
At least FOUR courses must be completed from a wide variety of electives. These may include courses selected with the advice and approval of the student’s advisor in specialty areas of police, corrections, security administration, international criminal justice, or legal studies. The department encourages students to enroll in one of its three international programs in fulfillment of these criteria.
