The Criminal Justice field needs a wide network of professionals in a wide array of roles to ensure the best public service. A basic understanding of the CJ system as a whole, its history, and factors of influence is critical for all persons in the industry. Union Institute & University’s (UIU) Criminal Justice Management (CJM) gives students this foundation.
The CJM program prepares students for advancement in any of the many professions within the criminal justice field. The program is based on the belief that social policy, decision-making, and reform in modern law enforcement require a broad academic experience. An emphasis is placed on organization management and its response to new policies, programs, personnel, and technology. Students will learn law enforcement theories, research methods, and the critical and analytic skills necessary to apply these tools in the field.
