Founded in 1934, the Criminal Justice program at Wichita State University is the second-oldest
program of its type in the United States.
The CJ program works in cooperation with other disciplines in the WSU School of Criminal
Justice to teach students to assimilate knowledge, acquire skills and develop professional
judgment and behaviors appropriate for wise and ethical practice.
"The criminal justice program at Wichita State University is well-rounded and flexible.
This program covers the history and practices of the criminal justice system as well
as burgeoning issues and perspectives in the fields...
I loved the undergraduate program so much that I decided to continue my education
in the graduate program here at Wichita State. I will graduate with a Master of Arts
in Criminal Justice in May 2021. Afterwards, I plan on working for a federal public
service agency." -Madison
