Administration of Justice

Administration of Justice

The Administration of Justice Program focuses on the interrelated components of the criminal justice system: public and private sector enforcement and investigation, legal systems, correctional treatment, and community services. One of the most attractive features of these careers is the daily excitement of the job; no two days are ever the same!

The study of administration of justice is approached as an applied interdisciplinary science, teaching students both the theoretical and the practical aspects of crime control and the administration of justice. The program curriculum provides students with the opportunity and assistance to learn about the roles of policing, courts, laws, and corrections as they relate to both the adult and juvenile justice system. Students also gain knowledge of the history, concepts, and critical issues related to the role of gender and race/ethnicity in the criminal justice system, victimology, and ethics in administration of justice.
