Located in the Hines Academic Center, the School of Criminal Justice offers master's- and doctoral-level curricula that address a wide range of social issues and research opportunities.

The School of Criminal Justice is a vibrant department, with approximately 50 master's students and 40 doctoral students. Twenty-five full-time faculty members are involved in educating students as well as engaging in a wide range of research endeavors. The School of Criminal Justice also administers a number of institutes and centers, such as the Center for Geospatial Intelligence and Investigation and the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT). 

The goals of the department are two-fold:

  1. the preparation of competent and responsible public servants to assume roles in criminal investigation and apprehension, agency administration, prosecution, and correctional services, and
  2. the preparation of graduates with advanced theoretical knowledge and research skills in criminal justice for leadership roles in academic, public policy, and administrative positions.

These goals are pursued in the context of a broad university curriculum that provides a foundation of knowledge necessary to function in a challenging world.
