The criminal justice major offers students a focused interdisciplinary exposure to all aspects of crime and criminal justice. Courses in the program deal with crime and other forms of deviance and the responses to these problems by police, courts, corrections and other organizations; contemporary criminal justice issues; and ethical concerns and research.
The Rutgers School of Criminal Justice also offers an accelerated program (B.S./M.A.) that combines an undergraduate liberal arts education with professional study. Students from Rutgers University and several other colleges and universities can participate in this program, focusing on their undergraduate studies during the first three years and spending the remainder of their time focusing on graduate studies.
