Criminal Justice Major

Criminal Justice Major Overview

The Criminal Justice Major provides a general orientation to society and social processes, but also includes a focused study of deviance, criminal behavior, and the criminal justice system.

Criminal Justice Majors are expected to be involved in a wide range of field activities throughout the time the major is being pursued. Field activities may be carried on in a variety of settings which may include: social work agencies serving those with histories of incarceration; public and private children's homes; homes for the delinquent; mental and penal institutions; probation and parole agencies; juvenile courts; inner-city ghettos; and depressed rural areas where significant substance abuse and other social problems are concentrated.
