Rutgers University of New Jersey
School of Criminal Justice
Ph.D.;, M.A.;J.D./M.A. (Joint Degree)
The school is interdisciplinary in structure since no traditional discipline covers the wide spectrum of expertise required. It is a major national and international center for scholarly research on all aspects of delinquency,crime, and criminal justice administration, adding to knowledge, providing a basis for the educational programs, and meeting its public service obligations in part by addressing the major need of all criminal justice agencies for improved procedures of evaluation and planning. Within this setting, the school provides graduate programs of instruction and research to prepare students for positions in research, in teaching, and in criminal justice system management and policymaking. The school has established the Center for Crime Prevention Studies to develop research and public policy in the emerging areas of environmental and situational crime prevention.
