Justice Studies students are among the university’s finest. They arrive on campus enthusiastic and ready to immerse themselves in our rigorous curriculum and become engaged in our community. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing our students with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities that will prepare them for the shifting landscape of criminal and social justice.
