The study of criminal justice is designed to help students obtain a better understanding of criminal offending and the processes in which the justice system undergoes in handling such cases. It is a career field that is growing, and for one to understand criminal behaviors is very important in the understanding of society. The criminal justice program at UW-Parkside primarily focuses on the American legal institution. Criminal Justice provides a wide array of studies including criminology, policing, the courts, juvenile delinquency/juvenile justice, and corrections. In addition, those who are interested in a career in corrections, policing, victimology, terrorism and security, the courts, juvenile justice, and criminology will find this degree rewarding and valuable towards the success in their chosen career.
