School of Criminal Justice

Rutgers School of Criminal Justice was founded almost fifty years ago, and since we opened our doors, we have been recognized as among the leading programs in the field. Over the years, our faculty have made significant contributions to criminal justice policy and criminological theory, and our graduates have taken their places among the most productive and well-respected scholars in the field. Today, studies show that we continue to rank among the top criminal justice programs nationwide, with special regard for our graduate programs.
