Information for Future Students
As a JLA student you will study a range of courses in all aspects of justice and law. You will examine the policies, politics, social and historical forces that influence and shape the law and justice arena. You will explore the organization and operations of various agencies that comprise the criminal justice system, and you will have the opportunity to choose from a selection of elective courses to round out your academic experience. With options in legal studies, paralegal studies, law enforcement, corrections, and criminology, the JLA program is home to over 500 majors and teaches up to 2,000 students per year.
You may choose the course load that’s best for you. Full-time students take four or five courses each semester, part-time students carry less. Part-time study allows you to continue your job, career, and personal activities without interruption while taking two or three courses each semester. Courses are offered day and evening, as well as during the summer and December/January intercession.
