Criminal Justice Studies Schools in Atlanta

Criminal justice studies develop an understanding for students of how police operate within communities and how cases move from the department to a trial. They focus on how government laws are implemented at the local, county, and state level and the role of discretion in police activities.

They also take courses in the perception of the media and the public on law enforcement activities. An associate’s degree may prepare one for an application as a police officer, while advanced degrees can aid in advancement or applications at state and federal agencies. Criminal justice studies may also be combined with pre-law programs for those looking to become attorneys.
