The Criminal Justice Graduate Program at Holy Family University provides students with an understanding of the historical, cultural, ideological, and political foundations of crime and its impact on various social institutions and systems. An emphasis on the significance of law and government as central frameworks within which the concepts of crime, adjudication, and punishments are defined and addressed enhances students’ awareness of the processes and agencies that combine to form the American justice system. Curricular offerings provide both a substantive and practical knowledge base that links multidisciplinary social-scientific theories and methods with effective and responsible public policy and the ethical practice of the justice professions within a free, multicultural, constitutional democracy. A capstone course that applies knowledge and practical skills to a specific justice-related issue or problem sharpens students’ writing, research, and communication skills, thereby preparing them either for doctoral-level study or for professional growth and advancement.
