If you choose Criminal Justice at MNU you'll explore the fascinating world of crime and justice. Criminal Justice students explore important and relevant issues for our society. Why do people commit crime? What should be done when crimes are committed? How can we prevent crime? When can the police search a suspect without a warrant? Is the death penalty an acceptable punishment? What impact should Christianity have on the criminal justice system?
You will examine the diverse field of Criminal Justice through classes in policing, court systems, corrections, law, and criminal forensics.
