The Criminal Justice system is an institution that is at the crux of societal concern. When individuals are asked to define major social problems, the fear of and response to crime are found at the top of the list. People not only want to have a better understanding of these problems; many also want to become a part of the solution. It is these individuals who will be the primary beneficiaries of the Criminal Justice major at KSU. The secondary beneficiaries are members of the community; university educated criminal justice personnel make better criminal justice practitioners. This program of study is timely and relevant. It infuses knowledge about interpersonal communication skills, multicultural issues, leadership and management concerns, moral and ethical considerations, and technological applications into the coursework.
The program is appropriate for pre-service as well as in-service students.
This program does not have specific admission requirements and only admission to Kennesaw State University is required. For more information, please visit the Admissions section of the Catalog.
