Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement
Welcome to the Department of Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement at Coppin State University, a Historically Black Institution in the University of Maryland System. Viewed as one of the fastest growing programs of the University, the Department offers both the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Criminal Justice.
The Department is very student-centered operating, with an orientation strongly geared toward developing students to their fullest potential. We have a long tradition of quality teaching and are proud of the fact that faculty have expertise including terrorism, policing, law, corrections, juvenile delinquency, and crime prevention. In addition to teaching a variety of undergraduate courses, faculty members are involved in research and publishing books and articles widely referenced by students, criminal justice professionals, and those involved in policy-making.
