Assessment of Student Learning

Criminal Justice Program


 

The Criminal Justice faculty has identified the specific objectives of its undergraduate curriculum. The following are the learning outcomes that we would like to see each Criminal Justice student acquire before graduation. We are continuously and actively assessing our program to ensure that these learning outcomes are being met.

1. Students will acquire an accurate knowledge base relating to crime in modern society to include the elements of major crime, the extent of crime, and its distribution in society.

2. Students will possess a broad historical and contemporary understanding of the institutions that make up our criminal justice system, the interconnectedness of these institutions, and the related issues of diversity and discrimination.

3. Students will develop an understanding of the major legal principles that serve as the foundation for criminal law and the processing of individuals through the justice system, as well as the difficult situations and ethical dilemmas they will face in the criminal justice field.

4. Students will understand and apply basic concepts and theoretical perspectives in criminology and criminal justice.

5. Students will possess the ability to access, comprehend, and critically examine research and policy relevant to the field of criminal justice and criminology, including understanding basic research methodology.
