About the Program

Learn more about the Criminal Justice major at Siena Heights University.

With the push for community policing, alternative corrections with Michigan Prisoner Reentry, individual accountability, higher educational standards, and sought-after innovative policing strategies with less personnel, now is the time to get a criminal justice degree and find your job in Criminal Justice.

Siena’s program has many points of pride — an important one being professional faculty members with practical experience — as well as smaller class sizes and numerous individually tailored internship possibilities in and outside of the community, to mention just a few.

“Our entire faculty is made up of working professionals within the criminal justice field and all of them from the surrounding community. Each faculty member is equally well read and esteemed in their respective positions, so that they offer the students real world practice and the theory driving it and incredible mentors for our students,” said SHU Criminal Justice Program Director Elly Teunion-Smith. “This diverse and experienced professor team, in a small university setting, where one-on-one teaching is the norm, is not something that you will get at a larger university. Each professor is continuously vigilant of issues and contemporary topics that are passed on to our students, which will one day be a professional in the criminal justice field working beside us.”
