The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology offers a policy-focused curriculum that provides students with the broad exposure in the social sciences preferred by governmental and private agencies. The B.A. prepares students for positions in the criminal justice system (e.g., law enforcement, courts, corrections, probation and parole, and juvenile justice), other government agencies (e.g., policy and planning, crime research, and investigation), and private sector organizations. Students who wish to go on to graduate education or law school have found the criminal justice degree a useful and relevant preparation.
Please see the WSU Catalog for specific course information.
