As a criminal justice major at Ashland University you will not only explore a fascinating curriculum that is highly relevant today, but you will take part in field experiences that give you in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system, investigation methods, the courts and correctional facilities.


In the past 3 years, over 60% of CJ graduates had completed at least one elective field experience with 45% of those participating in more than one.

100% of the CJ majors who attended the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) in Dayton, OH recommend upper class students interested in the Intelligence Community to participate.  Eligible students are sponsored for a top-secret security clearance and students work with real world criminal justice cases that are worked in conjunction with local, state and Federal law enforcement.
Criminal Justice graduates now serve the public good in a variety of capacities, including:  Chief of Police, US Marshal, Ohio State Highway Patrol Officer, working in the Cleveland Police Department Crime Lab, Homeland Security Officer, both adult and juvenile probation, and Intelligence Analyst at the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
Students can graduate with a BS in Criminal Justice in 3 years while still including a minor of their choice.  Students also have the opportunity to graduate with two majors or multiple minors all within 4 years.
