Criminal Justice

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. 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 the criminal justice major rewarding and a valuable asset which will contribute to a successful career.
