Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice major is an inter-disciplinary program anchored by a sociological perspective, a focus on ethical issues of concern, and a history of Dominican inquiry into issues of truth, community and justice. This major seeks to educate you to become a criminal justice professional who is able to handle the technical, psychological, and ethical challenges a career in criminal justice requires. Because the program is housed within the Social Science Department, you will receive a thorough training in Social Science Research Methods, Statistics and the opportunity to work closely with professors to produce your own original research.


The coursework I took in the Criminal Justice program at Edgewood College encouraged me to view different situations, whether professional or personal, in a different light and helped me to gain a broader perspective on the world.
