Slahor, Stephenie, Law & Order


The finest from the City University of New York

The John Jay College of Criminal Justice offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs designed to ensure not only successful educational experiences, but also achievement in specific criminal justice careers. The college is a part of The City University of New York, and offers a liberal arts and criminal justice curriculum balancing the fields of science, arts and humanities. Criminal Justice studies are offered in forensics, law enforcement, public service, human rights, and law. Programs are offered on campus or online in specific courses, certificate programs, and degree programs.

Multiple disciplines are the key to the college's criminal justice programs, with the Bachelor's degree offering analytical tools and skills applicable to law enforcement and forensics as they pertain to the nature and causes of crime, criminal justice institutions and organizations, and the legal system. The Bachelor's degree program was completely revised in 2012 and now offers an innovative approach to the study of criminal justice beyond the more traditional approach of factual knowledge of the status quo. The curriculum includes coursework in the dimensions of criminal justice, criminology, criminal behavior, race/gender/ethnicity in crime, statistics and research methods, supervised research and writing, and internship experiences.

The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice program is designed for those already a part of the criminal justice professions, but who desire to proceed in research methods into one of the college's eight offered specializations, which include the causes of crime, analysis of police action, courts and correctional systems, crime mapping, cybercrime, information security/ technology, and terrorism.

The unique "BA/MA" program allows students who are academically advanced to work, simultaneously, toward the Bachelor's and Master7s degrees. The curriculum is specifically for those in criminal justice, forensic psychology, or public administration. Students can begin graduate level courses once they fulfill the general education requirements, and some of the requirements of their particular major.

The Doctoral degree program in Criminal Justice is designed to prepare students for research, teaching and specialization in forensic science, oversight and administration, criminology, or criminal justice. Students must pass four qualifying and comprehensive examinations in theory, research methods, criminal justice process and policy, and statistics. A dissertation in the student's particular interest area caps the program. The college's Center for Crime Prevention and Control uses a curriculum for innovative crime reduction methods, research, and operational partnerships with law enforcement, communities, social sendees and others. …
