Criminal Justice & Criminology

College of Arts & Sciences

In conjunction with the goals of East Tennessee State University and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department offers three programs that encompass a philosophy of liberal arts education grounded in social science methodologies. The two undergraduate programs facilitate mastery of basic academic competencies and provide a basic level of expertise in the field of criminal justice and criminology. The two undergraduate programs are: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science with a concentration Social & Behavioral Science.

The graduate degree, a Master of Arts, promotes a critical examination of crime, offenders, and the criminal justice system while enhancing analytical and communication skills. The online graduate certification in Forensic Document Examination was recently approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents.
