In this major, you can specialize in one of three areas—criminal behavior, criminal law, or the criminal justice system—while gaining a thorough grounding in the field through a rigorous scientific approach.
Coursework focuses on the social and economic context in which the criminal justice system operates, as well as the nature of crime and criminality, law, and other topics. Students regularly complete internships with the New York State Police Crime Laboratory, state and federal courts, local police forces, and correctional institutions. The faculty members in the program range from a former New York State Assistant Attorney General to a multiple-year honoree in America’s Who’s Who Teachers of Excellence.
