University List

black Image of scales on white background with the words, "calibrate the scales" overlaid. As with any set of scales, the scales of justice must, from time to time, be recalibrated. Total balance is never achieved, but all in the criminal justice and legal systems must strive for it as much as possible.

List of Universities with Criminal Justice and Law Degree Programs

On this page you will find a list of all Universities in the United States which offer some form of Criminal Justice, Law, or related degree program. This includes, but is not limited to Liberal Arts as a precursor to a Law Degree, General Sociology programs, Psychology programs, and Government degrees.

Of course, because Criminal Justice is so complex today, some areas of study such as Forensic Science require entirely different programs of study. For instance, a Forensic Computer Specialist would need specialized math and science programs whereas a Coroner would certainly need Medical School. Such programs of study are not included in this list.

This list is only those Universities which provide the basic degree programs needed by anyone wanting to enter the more general Criminal Justice fields including Law. We will be adding more detailed information for each University related to both the particular University and the fields of study for Criminal Justice and Law students in the U.S.

In addition, our mission is to expand these listings to include Universities offering law and criminal justice programs worldwide.

NOTICE TO ALL UNIVERSITIES IN THE UNITED STATES: If you would like to add a page on this website explaining/promoting your criminal justice and law degree programs, we would love to hear from you. Reach out to us by either filling out the simple form at the bottom of this page or by writing
