Athletics is what initially attracted Jon Jones ’18 to LVC, but the emphasis on education is what really kept his attention. From Florida, originally, Jon has found a true home at Lebanon Valley College.
About Criminal Justice at LVC
Focus on recent trends in criminal justice such as community policing, community correctional policies, and crime prevention. Analyze how and why various crimes are committed and focus on the crimes of homicide, arson, rape, burglary, robbery, child abuse, organized crime, and white collar crime. And understand issues dealing with the constitutional rights of the accused.
We integrate criminological theory and criminal justice administration and policy so that you can think critically about the causes, consequences, prevention, and control of criminal activity. Courses in sociology and politics will provide you with a well-rounded understanding of the social, psychological, political, and legal issues relevant to the problem of crime—all so that you enter the workforce with an extensive background and thorough understanding of the issues that will need your leadership.
Our program partners with local and state agencies such as with the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center, Lebanon County Courts, and others that provide internships, research, and other hands-on learning opportunities.
