Program Overview

Criminal Justice is the study of processes put in place by the government in order to prevent, deter, and control crime. An effective criminal justice system is a prerequisite for a functional, free society. Without ways to regulate or reduce crime, laws would have little meaning and society would suffer. Criminal Justice agencies include law enforcement, the courts and the prison system. Those pursuing a Criminal Justice Technical Certificate of Credit have professed an interest in helping to manage crime. The practice of criminal justice can take a variety of forms at multiple levels of government including service in law enforcement and corrections.
