It studies crime, criminals, and the criminal justice system through an interdisciplinary approach that combines legal studies, sociology, political science, psychology, forensic science, public administration, urban studies, and philosophy.

As a student in the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice program, you study a myriad of topics related to theories about crime, crime and public policy, law, criminal courts, policing, corrections, juvenile justice, and the practice of criminal justice.
