There are continual demands for more and better-trained law enforcement officers, court administrators, and correctional personnel. At Campbell, we balance course instruction between theory and practice. We use a variety of approaches to give you the theoretical and practical framework you need including labs, field trips, symposiums, and a required internship. A typical major class will have just 20 students; some have as little as 10, so there is an emphasis on careful discussion, analysis, and interaction Our curriculum is designed to provide you with the knowledge you need to understand the institutions of the criminal justice process — police, courts, corrections — and the administration of justice. You will acquire an understanding of the various components of the formal criminal justice process, endemic and emerging issues in criminal justice, and many of the incongruities in the justice system. Additionally, you will be taught how to critically assess some of the major controversial issues in policing, courts, corrections, and administration. You will study criminology, victimology, political policy analysis, research methods, and other sociological tools used to measure and understand the etiology of crime, societies’ response to crime, and policy issues in the administration of justice. This curriculum will lead you to reevaluate your views of justice, the criminal justice system, and society in general. Noted criminologist James Q. Wilson believes that “It may turn out that a free society cannot really prevent crime. Perhaps its causes are locked so deeply into the human personality, the intimate processes of family life, and the subtlest aspects of popular culture that coping is the best that we can hope for.” Perhaps so, but our goal is to equip and prepare students so that they are on the cutting edge of the developments and have the best chance of “coping” with those challenges. The Criminal Justice department also allows students to concentrate in Homeland Security, a program not found at many other universities. This program draws from areas of Criminal Justice, Information Technology & Security, Social Science, and Accounting. The courses making up the concentration will relate to the Critical Mission Areas identified in the National Strategy for Homeland Security. Homeland Security students will understand the processes of the criminal justice system, learn vocabulary associated with homeland security, become familiar with domestic and international terrorist organizations, recognize strategies for disaster prevention, and examine areas of the world in which international terrorist organizations are formed. THE CAMPBELL FACULTY What sets Campbell’s faculty apart from the others? Our faculty members comprise a wide range of expertise, teaching experience, and interests. Having earned multiple academic degrees, they have been well-schooled in the discipline. Additionally, they possess personal experience honed on the front lines — on the street, in the courtrooms, prisons, or juvenile centers. Plus the faculty is very involved in both regional and national groups related to this major. We also charge ourselves with the responsibility of performing rigorous and thorough advisement of each student to ensure they get the courses and support needed to succeed. Finally, the department sponsors a variety of different clubs, organizations, and/or honor societies to facilitate bringing our majors together professionally and socially. THE CAMPBELL STUDENT We attract students who are analytical, motivated, and interested in pursuing careers in law enforcement, government, or private sector endeavors. Our criminal justice majors typically work for government agencies, private security firms, the North Carolina SBI, State Police, local police departments, and the Department of Corrections. The Criminal Justice Administration program concentrates on the goal of developing competent professionals who can respond to the challenge of crime appropriately and ethically in any level of government.
