CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Everywhere in today's world we face issues of crime and the criminal justice system.  Our system of criminal justice is a set of interrelated organizations, agencies, and programs that hold, treat, and punish those persons known to have committed a crime.

Welcome to the University of South Carolina Lancaster's Department of Criminal Justice home page.  Our criminal justice curriculum offers students an opportunity to study issues of  law enforcement, courts, corrections, education, juvenile services, and planning and research.  Not only is our program designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview and systematic background in criminal justice, but in the final stages of the student's criminal justice education at USCL, our criminal justice students will possess a common language, a fundamental knowledge base, and a mutual understanding of criminal justice problems.
