Criminal justice students study the systems involved in American justice. These systems include law enforcement, courts, corrections and law. In criminal justice, students deal with problems that have a very real impact on people’s lives. Learning from faculty who work in these fields, students get to use our hands-on laboratory—a lab that would make the cast of CSI jealous.
At MNU, we intentionally integrate faith into the classroom and it could not be more important than in a program like criminal justice where concepts like moral commitment, mercy and justice apply to high stakes situations.
“I’m intentional about giving the students as real a picture as I can about the forensic community, and giving them the skills they will need to get started in a law enforcement or forensic career.”

Deputy Sheriff, for Johnson County, KS, and adjunct instructor.
Our professors are professionals and scholars with clinical licenses at the highest levels in both Kansas and Missouri. Many currently work as law enforcement officers, psychologists, counselors, attorneys, sociologists and crime scene investigators. Our faculty live what they teach.
