The Department of Criminal Justice

The mission of the Department of Criminal Justice is to offer high quality education to those seeking employment with local and national criminal justice agencies. Given the comprehensive orientation of the University, our educational focus is to prepare students to be fully informed participants at all levels of the justice field. In order to provide the highest quality education, faculty actively participate in scholarship. Faculty also provide service to justice entities, the community, and the profession.

The Department of Criminal Justice at Boise State University transitioned to the new School of Public Service as of July 1st, 2015. We have approximately 800 undergraduate majors in our Associate’s, Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Science degree programs. Another 35 students comprise our Master of Arts program, Idaho’s premier program in Criminal Justice.

We offer courses at our main campus located in the heart of downtown Boise, as well as a variety of classes at our campuses in Twin Falls and at Gowen Field. In addition to offering courses during the day, we offer convenient evening and weekend formats for many of our courses.

With Boise State’s AfterWork program, you can earn your Criminal Justice undergraduate degree entirely in the evenings, on weekends, and on the Internet!
