Our Public Justice major is a multidisciplinary liberal arts program with special emphasis in the social and behavioral sciences, leading to a bachelor of arts degree. You can study administration of justice, corrections, court and judicial administration, juvenile delinquency, law enforcement, probation, parole, community-based rehabilitation programs, private security and pre-law.
The Public Justice title indicates our program's concern with matters beyond the confines of the criminal justice system. Our field of study encompasses the origins, missions, goals, policies and methods of the civil and criminal justice systems, as well as the human services system. Courses focus on history, public policy, ethics, and social and political organization. We deal with the way laws are made, applied and enforced; with policies and goals that inspire those laws and for whose accomplishment the laws are a vehicle; and with public service and public institutions that are a part of maintaining order in society and, to an increasing extent, responsible for distributing entitlements to the public.
Our goal is to examine the way this public enterprise does -- and should -- interact with its constituents. To achieve this goal, majors combine a broad-based liberal arts education, in-depth research on topics in which they have a special interest and supervised fieldwork experience. Students are taught by public justice core faculty, faculty from supporting departments and adjunct faculty with specialized knowledge and experience.

The Public Justice Club bonds students who share common goals and interests, can learn more about public agencies and the community, and explore ways to serve our community. The club has a variety of different events and activities planned, which include guest speakers, ride-alongs and trips to jails/prisons. The club is always looking for new members and new activities in which to take part.
Core faculty are full-time professors who teach public justice core and elective courses, advise students and help the planning and operation of the department. Other full-time faculty from cooperating departments teach and advise public justice students. These faculty come from departments such as Anthropology, Chemistry, Counseling and Psychological Services, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. This enhances the multidisciplinary character of the program.
