Historical Note: The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice is designed as a liberal arts program rooted in the social sciences and as a professional preparation program in criminal justice administration. Through traditional classroom instruction and required hands-on experiences in criminal justice agencies and facilities, the department provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for a successful career in corrections, law enforcement, victim assistance, investigation, or corporate and private security, as well as for the pursuit of graduate degrees in criminology and criminal justice, law, or related disciplines. Employment opportunities in these fields are plentiful, and students work with faculty advisors to determine the best preparation for their career goals. In support of the liberal arts mission of the College of Arts and Sciences and Indiana State University, the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice participates in the Foundational Studies Program and the Women’s Studies Program.
