You are interested in the law…
Whether that means becoming a lawyer, or getting involved in law enforcement as a detective or in forensics, you want to use your career to understand and uphold the law.
The Criminal Justice degree at Tennessee Wesleyan prepares students with an understanding of the law. Students learn the process, from crime to trial, through courses with integrated curriculum.
Students can also choose the Forensics emphasis to include focused courses like Drugs and Crime, Forensics, and Trial Practice.
Students with a Criminal Justice degree from TWU are able to utilize their majors by following several different career paths. Graduates have gone on to Law School to become lawyers, and many find themselves in jobs in the field, such as police detective, probation office, or correctional supervisor.
Criminal Justice majors have multiple opportunities for involvement within the program, including the Criminal Justice Club, the biennial trip to Washington D.C., the annual event hosting world renowned forensic anthropologist, Dr. Bill Bass, and more.
