As a Criminal Justice major at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, you will be prepared for challenging and exciting careers within federal, state, county, and municipal justice systems. The curriculum includes specialized courses reflecting current trends in justice in the United States and world-wide.

In classes with low student-to-faculty ratios, you will have access to faculty with both real-life and research experience and have the opportunity to get the most out of each course from exciting applied-learning experiences. Because of this broader comprehensive study in criminal justice, an additional minor is not required to graduate.
