The Criminal Justice Program
We blend theory and practice. From policing and courts, to crime analysis and forensics. You'll have a strong foundation in a wide range of areas of criminal justice. Our graduates are prepared for leadership at local, state, and federal levels.
Our faculty make the classroom come alive. You'll learn from internationally-recognized scholars and current outstanding practitioners in the field. We bring the real-world to the classroom.

Students must obtain a 3.5 GPA in the major as well as cumulatively to be considered for nomination to Alpha Phi Sigma. Consideration of nominees occurs in February and notification of nominees is made in March.
