Criminal Justice Department
A criminal justice degree opens doors to a variety of challenging and rewarding careers. Are you interested in public-service occupations such as law enforcement, corrections, probation, military intelligence, homeland security or the courts systems? How about private-sector opportunities in loss prevention, corporate security or insurance and fraud investigation? Or do you have your sights set on law school or other graduate programs? Our small, personalized courses are taught by professors with real-world experience. For your flexibility, many courses are offered online or at convenient times on campus.
Criminal justice students can choose courses that provide hands-on training in a crime lab setting utilizing audiovisual programs and aids, fingerprint kits, drug identification and handwriting analysis. There are several internship options to pursue in your junior or senior year. You can also learn about other cultures and justice systems through opportunities to study in South Africa, Mexico, Europe and Asia.
Graduates of NMU criminal justice programs have gone onto become police officers and administrators, game wardens, juvenile delinquency specialists, corrections officers and loss prevention specialists. They work for local, state and federal agencies. A growing demand also exists in the private security field.
