Criminal Justice

The criminal justice program at Murray State prepares you to think critically and ethically about crime and justice. But that’s not all! Graduates of this program have either gone on to excel in law school or have immediately entered the workforce to begin making a difference in people’s lives. Our professors work diligently to challenge and equip you, along with every student, with the tools necessary for success — both in the classroom and in your professional life.
