Welcome to the Department of Criminal Justice Administration
Welcome to the Department of Criminal Justice Administration at Park University. This program combines the Park University tradition of liberal arts education with a modern professional curriculum to prepare graduates to work in criminal justice and related professions or move on to graduate school.
All full-time faculty, and most adjuncts, have at least twenty years of professional work experience in the field, as well as terminal academic degrees. We study all segments of the criminal justice system, from law enforcement, through courts, to corrections. We have areas of concentration in law enforcement, corrections, and security, lead by experienced professionals.
We offer experiential opportunities in all areas through internships and special topics courses. We focus on critical thinking, effective communication (both oral and written), enabling life long learning, and working in a global society through possible international study.
Our alumni have gone on to jobs in a wide variety of areas, including police officers, juvenile officers, probation officers, security managers, and counselors with non-profit agencies assisting abused adults and children.
Several alumni have completed graduate programs in criminal justice and public administration, as well as law school.
