B.A. in Criminal Justice and Psychology

"I started taking Criminal Justice classes as electives. The more classes I took the more I wanted to take, this is how my passion for criminal justice started. All I wanted to do was learn and talk about topics pertaining to criminal justice. During my time in the program, Dr. Steven Taylor and Dr. Tracy Crump provided me with never ending academic freedom and guidance. After spending time with Dr. Tracy Crump analyzing different ideas to approach I was able to find my passion. The criminal justice professors allowed me to challenge my thinking in the best way academically by providing constructive feedback, always answering questions, and valuing my opinion in the process. Classroom time was often spent on understanding different mindsets making the classroom an open and free space to think and discuss. The patience that was given by professors inside and outside of the classroom made my experience better."
