Department of Criminal Justice



Kimberly McMaster and department faculty members serve as our Department of Criminal Justice advisors. Your instructors and advisors will help you to develop a greater understanding of your values and goals. If you have a specific interest, please inform us early on so we can assign you to an advisor who will provide expertise in that area. We encourage you to get to know your advisor well in your first year. Your advisor will:

  • Introduce you to the expectations and opportunities of the academic community and its values and rewards.
  • Discuss your objectives and help identify your individual strengths and talents, as well as skills that need more development to succeed.
  • Help you create an academic program that facilitates exploration of your interests and realization of your goals.
  • Encourage you to actively participate in the learning process and link you to resources on campus to help in your personal discovery and development.
  • Provide feedback to reinforce your successes and explore options to resolve academic difficulties.
  • Teach you how to use information and other resources to make decisions and take responsibility for those decisions.

Advising is a partnership - you take an active role in establishing and maintaining contact with your advisor as you assume ever-increasing responsibility for knowing the academic requirements and university procedures.
