Criminal Justice & Legal Studies

The Department of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies offers two programs: a major in criminal justice and legal studies and a minor in criminal justice and legal studies. The criminal justice and legal studies program involves teaching skills that will be applicable in the legal environment, such as legal business applications and knowledge of specialty law subjects. Most classes are based on lectures and focused projects. Both the major and minor are popular avenues to law school. They also provide students with opportunities to develop specific skills of value to a wide variety of prospective employers, including data analysis, communication, decision-making, and research competencies. The minor is an excellent complement to any major at Southwestern College, including business, communication, English, philosophy and religion, and psychology.
