Your Experience

This major explores every dimension of criminal justice, from the sociological issues that lead to crime to the evaluation of public policies. We prepare you for a career in law enforcement, social work, international peacekeeping and other related areas.

You will study criminal behavior and learn how to navigate the legal system. You also will learn about investigative techniques, forensic technology and digital security risks such as cybercrime, a growing global problem.

Real-world experience takes our program to the next level. A full-time internship coordinator helps you reach your career goals. Our criminal justice majors have interned with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance and the federal witness protection program, among others.
