THE CAMPBELL PROGRAM
THE CAMPBELL APPROACH
The administration of justice is an endemic and critical issue that
confronts any free society. 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.
