About Us

As the head of the Criminal Justice Department, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website and provide you with a brief introduction to our department.

Criminal justice is the third most popular major at NMU. Our faculty and adjuncts come from diverse backgrounds with a wealth of knowledge having worked in the criminal justice, corrections and loss prevention fields. Our programs emphasize both theoretical studies and applied knowledge in the field providing students with diverse perspectives leading to careers in law enforcement, corrections, loss prevention, and the court systems. We offer on-campus and online courses as well.

We are part of the College of Health Sciences and Professional Studies (CHSPS).

Each of these jobs is currently in high demand, and labor specialists predict that federal jobs in criminal justice will continue to grow.
