Criminal Justice Studies majors are encouraged to demonstrate an independent willingness to advance the practice of criminal justice through their classes and seminars, meetings with their student associations, and interactions with the faculty. As an interdisciplinary program within a Catholic, Marianist University, our program encourages students to become "improvement agents" in their service to the community. Students are expected to demonstrate the behaviors necessary for effective personal and group relationships while incorporating the rights and responsibilities of individuals, accepting and utilizing criticisms, and respecting human differences. The Criminal Justice Studies Program attempts to educate majors, minors and interested students who will take an active interest in their community upon graduation either as professionals or concerned citizens.
