Criminal Justice

“With the Criminal Justice Department I have visited the FBI Training Academy, the Hudson County Jail, and five foreign countries; these are only some of the opportunities available to criminal justice students.”
– Nic G. ‘13

Interest in Criminal Justice is soaring.

At Saint Peter’s University, our criminal justice program attracts students who want to make a difference.

With a solid foundation in the Jesuit educational principles of justice and social equality, our six undergraduate specialization options provide students with the opportunity to explore areas as diverse as law and justice, corrections, police administration, investigative sciences, criminal research and intelligence analysis, and computer science and crime forensics.

Students are also strongly encouraged to complete supplementary double majors or minors from areas such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, accounting, English, history, political science, or modern languages.

Students who successfully complete a degree in criminal justice will be well positioned to assume roles in the ever-expanding criminal justice field—whether it’s at the local precinct, the FBI, the courthouse or a federal or state agency.
