Geneva adds major in Criminal Justice

Beginning in the upcoming fall semester of 2014, Geneva College will offer a new major in criminal justice. The overarching goal of this program is to create an interdisciplinary experience, drawing from psychology, human services, sociology, and political science, that prepares students to serve God through compassionate service.

Dr. Diana Rice, Chair of the Department of Psychology, Counseling & Human Services that will house the new program, says, “Geneva’s approach to criminal justice will benefit students who wish to work in prisons, prepare for police academies, become parole officers or any number of vocations within the field.”

The curriculum for the criminal justice major provides students with vital opportunities for field experience in nearby communities and will feature a biblically integrated curriculum with a focus on restorative justice. This type of justice places emphasis on community and the harm that crime causes to victims and to offenders rather than simply viewing crime as a violation of law. The guiding principle is righting a wrong and restoring peace.

In addition to courses in restorative justice, students in the criminal justice program will learn about justice systems, public administration, criminal investigation procedures and more. The Geneva program also features a unique course on criminology taken alongside inmates at the Beaver County Jail.

Geneva College invites students to accept the challenge of an academically excellent, Christ-centered education. Offering nearly 40 undergraduate majors, Adult Degree Programs with fully online and campus-based options, and seven graduate degrees, Geneva has programs that place students at the forefront of higher learning. Adhering to the inerrancy of Scripture, a Geneva education is grounded in God’s word as well as in a core curriculum designed to prepare students vocationally to think, write and communicate well in today’s world.
