The field of criminal justice is multidisciplinary. Professionals work as law enforcement officers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, probation/parole officers, counselors, managers, administrators, researchers, planners, corrections officers and more. In each case, the quality of our work affects the lives of many individuals, and impacts societal mores and the effectiveness of the justice system. Accordingly, criminal justice professionals must have the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Therefore, each student entering the major must sign on to a Department Code of Conduct. It is a statement of philosophy which reflects the standards to which all criminal justice professionals should enthusiastically adhere.
The criminal justice department has two student-run organizations, Criminal Justice Student Association (Sigma Tau Omicron) and the Honor Society (Nu Beta). Click on the links to find out about each organization. In addition to the two student-run organizations, the department will be hosting a new program called Teamfit. More information on Teamfit is forthcoming.
Students are encouraged to get involved in any of the other organizations on campus.
