Criminal Justice Systems


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools

The Department of Undergraduate Psychology, in collaboration with the California School of Forensic Studies oversees the Baccalaureate of Science Degree in Criminal Justice Systems. The program offers a common core across criminal justice disciplines with six concentration areas: Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Criminal Justice, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Integrated Health, and Couple and Family Therapy. These specializations are designed specifically to lead into corresponding graduate study and or transition into the workforce. An important component of the criminal justice systems program is its nine-unit capstone sequence where students gain considerable practical training in two field placements, something not typical of most undergraduate programs. The Department provides students a fundamental understanding and appreciation of societal interdependence as well as the development of multicultural and global perspectives. Considerable emphasis on the interdisciplinary nature of learning, trauma informed and ecological perspectives are reinforced. The Program maintains high standards of integrity and quality of a comprehensive criminal justice curriculum as recommended by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) and is seeking accreditation from the ACJS in the coming academic year.
