Students study three broad areas: law enforcement, which upholds the law; the courts, which safeguard the judicial process; and corrections, which provide societal protection and rehabilitation. By the time they graduate, students are prepared to work in courts, jails and within law enforcement agencies.

The criminal justice and criminology program at UW-Milwaukee has strong connections to agencies, police departments, businesses and government entities throughout Wisconsin. Each spring, students and alumni network with representatives from these entities at the Criminal Justice Career Day Fair.
