The study of criminal justice is a growing field, designed to help students obtain a better understanding of criminal offending and the processes in which the justice system undergoes in handling such cases. For students to understand criminal behavior it is very important to understand society.
The criminal justice program (CRMJ) at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside primarily focuses on the American legal institution.
