Hello and Welcome...
...to our department web site. Our strength as an academic program comes from the resourceful combination of back-grounds in our teaching and research. Our faculty have advanced degrees in law, criminal justice, criminology, history, religion, ethics, theology, and sociology. Consequently, we are a broadly focused group of faculty, staff, and students who are concerned with justice in its many dimensions.
As an undergraduate major, Justice Studies is an excellent choice because it offers a variety of challenging and well-taught courses on various aspects of justice. This major prepares you for careers in various departments of justice in the United States, as well as within international justice systems. You may also use this major to prepare for law school, teaching, and graduate work and research in many fields. Our department promotes student community engagement in the greater Chicago communities through internships.
