The program offers an introduction to the field of criminal justice and is designed to help students understand how they may impact their communities as potential criminal justice professionals.(1)

The critical elements of criminal justice intersect in the coursework and projects: criminology; victimology; policing; security; crime scene investigation; evidence processing; forensics; juvenile justice; constitutional and criminal law; and more.

Instructors with backgrounds in criminal justice fields – like border patrol, corrections and law – engage students in various ways, from online forums to special speakers. Most importantly, students can practice the skills they learn in our criminal justice lab.

For example, as a criminal justice student at our Cleveland campus, you may experiment with blood spatter detection as part of the crime scene investigation curriculum; you will also have opportunities to participate in a mock trial while learning about criminal prosecution.
