Criminal Justice


Kean University Criminal Justice Student Association

Students enrolled at Kean are invited to join the Criminal Justice Club, which is run by elected student leadership, with faculty advisement.  In the past, the club has invited professionals working in the criminal justice system to speak about their jobs.  Also, the Club has taken trips to prisons, courts, halfway houses, and even the famous New York City Criminal Court.  Students who want to explore different possible career directions find the CJ Club very useful as a source of finding out "what's out there."

Alpha Phi Sigma, The National Criminal Justice Society

Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Honor Society for Criminal Justice, is dedicated to recognizing and promoting excellence in the study and practice of criminal justice, fostering integrity, professionalism, and creative performance, and promoting scholarship and accomplishment in criminal justice.
