Liberal Studies Program: As outlined on appropriate Liberal Studies Check Sheet

*Indicates courses that also meet Liberal Studies requirements

Among requirements for graduation, the student must have a 2.00 average in the major and must pass a comprehensive examination administered by the major division department.

The Criminal Justice program is a multidisciplinary major designed to give students the knowledge base to understand the difficult issues associated with law enforcement, the complexity of human behaviors related to crime, and the multiplicity of agencies, organizations, and units of government necessary to work effectively as a law enforcement professional. This is a course of study that requires students to adopt a serious approach to professional study and preparation and develop a high level of maturity and judgment. Any history of criminal offenses would prevent a student from gaining employment in this field and would disqualify them from field practicum or internships at law enforcement agencies arranged through the college.
