Major and Related Requirements

The School of Criminal Justice at Texas State University offers three degree paths for students interested in pursuing a career in criminal justice

This guide will help criminal justice majors select specific upper-level courses according to the degree plan they choose to follow, Law Enforcement, Corrections or General/Criminal Justice. Students can choose to whether or not to complete an internship, however, participation in the internship program is strongly encouraged because it gives students a chance to gain insight into the practitioner side of criminal justice. Students who complete an internship are more likely to gain employment immediately after graduation; students who do not complete an internship are not as likely to gain employment after graduation because they lack an appropriate network to find and achieve employment opportunities.
