Administration of Justice

Since its inception in 1984, the Administration of Justice Program has provided its students with exceptional faculty members from diverse backgrounds who help students develop the necessary critical thinking skills to compete in the multi-faceted world of criminal justice.

The Administration of Justice program prepares students to become change-capable criminal justice practitioners by exploring major components of the criminal justice system and their relationships within a democratic system.

Our program demonstrates that the criminal justice system and the problems of crime and delinquency are part of a larger sociocultural pattern rather than an isolated system. Our graduates often secure top jobs and become leaders at the local, state, and federal levels of law enforcement and in the private security industry.

Administration of Justice faculty members are adept at advising students on their career goals. The majority of faculty members have actual professional experience in the fields they teach. The level of education provided by our experienced faculty has become the foundation for the success of our graduates.
