Justice Studies

The Justice Studies program helps prepare students for careers in law enforcement.

Mission

The Justice Studies Program seeks to provide students with a systems orientation to the field of criminal justice and a holistic view of behavior, conditions, and circumstances that produce crime and criminality. Crime, criminality, and the criminal justice system are studied from a social science perspective. Students acquire a knowledge base and comprehensive understanding of criminological theory as it applies to the causation, prevention, control, and treatment of criminal behavior. Students are provided the opportunity to study the application of forensic science within the context of the investigative process. The program provides students the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills in interpersonal communications, program and policy development, community organization, planning and research to function in a professional position in the field of criminal justice.

Residency

Students who major in Justice Studies must meet all the residency requirements of the University. In addition, the student must take a minimum of 12 s.h. in Justice Studies courses (JUS) at Methodist University.
