Overview

The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice is a unit of the College of Arts and Sciences of Indiana State University. It is a rapidly growing department and is launching a new degree program in Intelligence Analysis beginning fall 2018. The program offers concentrations in counterintelligence, criminal intelligence, intelligence operations and intelligence collection. The department provides undergraduate and graduate distance learning programs, consulting and training services for public and governmental agencies, and technical support through its Institute of Criminology. The department has modern classroom facilities including a crime lab, and “smart rooms” for interactive video and computer instruction. Also, our programs offer internship opportunities. The Criminology program has grown to over 800 undergraduate majors and 70 graduate students both on campus and in the distance education programs. It is anticipated that the Intelligence Analysis program will enroll between 500 to 600 majors when fully implemented, with new faculty positions added to meet enrollment and program needs. The department is multidisciplinary with a broad emphasis on justice and security matters. More information is available through the department website at www.indstate.edu/cas/ccj.
