The criminal justice major is offered through the Sociology Department in conjunction with the University College. The program is designed to provide students with an understanding of the problems of crime, delinquency, law, and social control. The major combines a strong liberal arts background with specialized courses in law, criminology, sociology, psychology, and law enforcement administration. The overall objective of the program is to provide a sound educational basis for either graduate work or professional training.

The major is interdisciplinary in nature, and students may select courses in University College, the Derner Institute for Advanced Psychological Studies and the Departments of Anthropology, Political Science, and Sociology. Many of the required courses are cross-listed, enabling students to receive credit toward their degrees through University College or the College of Arts and Sciences.

For additional information, contact Stephanie Lake in the Sociology Department at lake@adelphi.edu or (516) 877-4941, or Emily Wilson in University College at wilson@adelphi.edu or (516) 877-3400.
