Overview

 If you find yourself drawn to watching Law and Order, CSI, or Boston Legal then you will find the Pre-College Program, Introduction to Criminal Justice, a dynamic way to get to the bottom of these questions and at the truth behind the television dramas.

Come study at Marist this summer and open the doors to the diverse and complex world of criminal justice. It all starts with policing where the law is honored and protected. Our court processes determine if and what punishment is warranted. A diverse system of corrections carries out the courts' sanctions. While exploring these topics students will have the opportunity to meet with Marist graduates who are now professionals in different areas of the criminal justice system. You will visit many different law enforcement agencies such as local and state police,  county courts, district attorney offices, and a correctional facility. This course will introduce you to many career opportunities in criminal justice. Even more importantly this course will strengthen your participation as an informed citizen in our society who knows her/his personal rights and his/her responsibilities to maintain a just and orderly society.
