About Us

SUNY Buffalo State's criminal justice program is the oldest in Western New York.

The program offers a large, well-qualified, nationally knowm faculty, who are trained in a variety of disciplines with a policy-oriented curriculum, grounded in the social sciences.

Classes are relatively small and the department is involved in the community with a well-developed internship program.

Beyond the Classroom

Students are strongly encouraged to also engage in applied learning experiences, such as internships and involvement with law-related student organizations.

After Graduation

Criminal justice majors are prepared for positions as law-enforcement and corrections officers on the local, state, and federal levels and for positions with community agencies that deal with crime, the criminal justice system, and victims of crime.

Students who choose graduate school typically pursue doctoral programs in criminal justice or enter law school.
