School of Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Emergency Management

Photo of U.S. Supreme CourtOn behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of the School of Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Emergency Management, welcome to our home page!  The School works collaboratively to investigate, understand, and solve social problems related to crime.  We offer both the bachelor's and master's degrees in criminal justice, an undergraduate minor in criminal justice, an undergraduate minor in forensic studies, certificate programs in applied forensics and in high-tech crime, and a master's degree in Emergency Services Administration.  All of these programs are interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on the fields of criminology, law, sociology, psychology, political science, philosophy, and, when applicable, the natural sciences as well.  Through a social scientific lens, our challenging curricula are designed to sharpen students’ reasoning, ethical decision making, problem solving, and communication abilities.  Graduates of our degree programs are well-prepared to become agents of positive change in the justice system through evaluation, research, ethical practice, and dedicated service.

Our first-rate faculty is comprised of teacher-scholars who enjoy national reputations in their respective areas of expertise.  A supporting group of part-time faculty members who are dedicated, highly knowledgeable justice professionals assist in the delivery of a curriculum that combines the best of theory, policy, research, and practice.  And, our comprehensive internship program allows all students to integrate their classroom-based knowledge with practical, applied experiential learning that, in turn, helps students make informed decisions about employment and/or further educational opportunities.  Graduates enter careers in policing, corrections (including probation and parole), the court system, social service agencies, private security, juvenile justice, investigations, and in research and/or policy divisions of numerous governmental agencies.  Graduates are also well-prepared to pursue advanced degrees in criminology/criminal justice, law, public affairs, and related graduate fields.

Please take some time to explore our web site.  We hope it answers many of the questions that you may have as either a current or prospective student. If not:

Thank you for your interest in our programs.  We hope to see you in our classes in the near future.

Sincerely,

Henry F. Fradella, J.D., Ph.D.
