Criminal Justice Professors
The Criminal Justice major at Oswego is an interdisciplinary bachelor of arts program based in the liberal arts with special emphasis in the social and behavioral sciences. Its areas of study include, but are not limited to: administration of justice, corrections, courts and judicial administration, juvenile delinquency, law enforcement, probation, parole, community-based rehabilitation programs, private security, and pre-law.
The department’s purpose also centers on providing students with a comprehensive understanding the concepts, policies, systems and processes of justice, as well as problems in involving the provision of human, legal and social services to the public by professionals in law, corrections, and law enforcement. Criminal Justice majors combine broadly based liberal arts electives with research and study in areas of special interest and an option for an internship in the field. To aid in achieving these goals, students are taught by faculty, with professional and academic expertise, and adjunct faculty with specialized knowledge and experience.
Working with the Division of Extended Learning, the Criminal Justice major is available online as a completion degree.
