Established for more than 20 years, the Criminal Justice Program at DWU remains one of the largest programs at the university.
Here, students develop both a theoretical and practical knowledge of the three major spheres of criminal justice: law enforcement, the courts and corrections. And we include coursework in the following areas of interest:
- Forensic Science & Investigation
- Wildlife Law Enforcement
- Legal Studies
- Financial/White Collar Crimes
- Terrorism & Homeland Security
Our students have completed internships with police, highway, and sheriff’s departments, investigative agencies, juvenile treatment services, child protection services, judicial districts and prosecutors’ offices, probation and parole services, drug and alcohol centers, behavioral hospitals, and correctional facilities.
Our graduates have gone on to become everything from security analysts and forensic psychologists to police chiefs, attorneys, and federal agents.
