Administration of Justice

Administration of Justice is the study of the structure, functions, laws/procedures, and decision-making processes of those agencies that deal with the management of crime--the police, prosecutors, courts and correctional facilities. Students may take courses to prepare for a major in criminal justice, criminology or law enforcement or to fulfill general education requirements. Courses are also of interest to professionals working in law enforcement, corrections or other related fields.
Career options include work in federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, correctional agencies and institutions, and private security agencies.
