Some graduates, particularly those with prior training or work experience in criminal justice, seek career advancement in that field at the local, state, and federal levels of government. The program emphasizes both breadth and depth of knowledge about crime, delinquency, deviant behavior, corrections, and law. Productive scholarship is stressed throughout the program and graduate students are encouraged to develop a professional orientation toward teaching, research, and publication through direct involvement in the teaching and research activities of the faculty.
