The academic field of criminal justice is interdisciplinary and involves the study of the definition of crime, the causes and control of criminal behavior, and the operation of the criminal justice system (i.e., police, courts, and corrections). The study of criminal justice is both theoretical and practical in nature and emphasizes theory, policy, planning, and evaluation. Through classroom and field experience, students are prepared for responsible positions of service in law enforcement, the courts, corrections, and youth service agencies.
