Justice in a Changing World
The fields of criminology and criminal justice have changed a great deal over the last 20 years, particularly in law enforcement, sentencing, and victims’ advocacy. UNC’s Criminology and Criminal Justice faculty offer courses on a broad range of topics to prepare students for these changes. Throughout the program, UNC’s CRJ faculty and professional advisor guide and support students in their course selection, career planning, and internship placement. In addition, the department’s annual CRJ Mock Oral Board and CRJ Employment Expo events connect students with potential employers and help students hone job interviewing skills.
At the undergraduate level, UNC offers a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice, a minor in Criminology and Criminal Justice, and a certificate in Criminal Investigation. At the graduate level, UNC offers a Master of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice. The master’s program is delivered in a hybrid format giving busy professionals flexibility; the program’s core courses are held in the evenings at UNC’s Centerra campus in Loveland and elective courses are offered online.
