Declaring the Major | Progressing in the Major
Justice studies is not a traditional criminal justice major that takes crime as a given and then examines the proper procedures and methods for solving it; it is a major that examines conditions and behaviors that are often defined as crimes and studies them from a variety of angles in hopes of coming to a better understanding of them. The major looks at justice problems at the international, national and local levels with the goal of helping you develop your own definitions and understanding of justice.
