Justice Studies

Bachelor’s Degree

University of Maine at Augusta

UMA’s Justice Studies program prepares students for expanding opportunities in border patrol, paralegal positions—public and private, probation—state and federal, and risk management. Program majors graduate with confidence, knowing they possess the advanced credentials employers in law-related fields increasingly prefer. Students in the Bachelor’s program will be able to

  • use critical thinking skills to illustrate how the Due Process Clause of the 14 th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution restricts state criminal law and police procedure in past decisions and apply those decisions to future hypothetical cases.
  • compare the values in the criminal process of an international body, e.g. the International Criminal Court, or a foreign country to the United States’ criminal justice values and assess the consequences of these differences.
  • complete an internship and senior capstone project.
