Saint Leo University has been educating both active and aspiring criminal justice professionals for more than 30 years with class sizes small enough for innovative teaching and individualized attention. Our 39-hour major is based on the input of a diverse criminal justice advisory board that is designed to prepare students for careers and rapid advancement in the criminal justice system and related fields. We have recently added a specialization in Criminalistics.
This program of study will enhance the effectiveness of working professionals, provide a foundation for advancement to administrative levels, and prepare students for graduate study in criminal justice administration and related fields. Core curriculum will cover the study of substantive criminal law, criminal justice ethics, criminology, and crime scene investigation.
