The Criminal Justice program caters to the needs of individuals seeking law enforcement careers as well as those already working in the field. Courses cover the basics of criminal justice through advanced training in such areas as hostage negotiation, forensics, and criminal investigation. In addition to excellent academic credentials, the instructors have professional law enforcement backgrounds at the federal, state, and local level.
After students complete the B.S. program in Criminal Justice, they are qualified for a variety of career opportunities including law enforcement and private security work. Our graduates are also qualified to apply to law school, or M.A./Ph.D. programs in criminal justice. Students are encouraged to apply for externships while working towards their undergraduate degree and are also encouraged to strive for membership in NYIT’s chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Honor Society in Criminal Justice. They are also encouraged to participate in the Behavioral Science Club, which is open to all behavioral science majors.
