Hamline’s criminology and criminal justice (CCJ) major provides students a social science approach to the study of crime. The required courses provide a broad foundation in crime and justice, and social research methods to understand criminal justice policy and interventions. CCJ majors develop knowledge of the key components of the criminal justice system. Students learn how policy impacts both the institutions and individuals working within the system. Majors gain a solid methodological foundation to critique policy and criminal justice interventions being used by professionals today.

Hamline University is unique in offering students the opportunity to complement their CCJ major with a forensic science minor. Students also have the option to complete a forensic psychology concentration with the CCJ major.
