Criminal Justice

The criminal justice major is one of the largest and fastest growing majors on campus, as well as being one of the most diverse.

Our teaching methods are innovative and designed to meet the needs of today's criminal justice students.  The criminal justice degree can be earned with day or evening classes. Students from  Gateway Technical College in Wisconsin and the College of Lake County in Illinois benefit from convenient transfer and articulation agreements.

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 topics including policing, the courts, juvenile justice and corrections.  In addition, those interested in a career in corrections, law enforcement, victimology, terrorism and security will find the criminal justice major rewarding and a valuable asset which will contribute to a successful career.
