Welcome to the Department of Criminal Justice at Radford University!
Criminal justice involves the study of crime and the criminal justice system, and is an interdisciplinary and professionally-oriented academic discipline. Learn more about our programs and faculty.
We are moving!!!
The Department of Criminal Justice will no longer be located at 307 Adams Street. We will move to the new College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences building, located between Muse Hall and McConnell Library, to begin the fall 2016 semester. Most of our faculty members do not have on-campus offices for the summer. The following faculty will have an office on the second floor of Russell Hall for the summer:
Dr. Steve Owen - Room 245
Mrs. Lynn Arnold - Room 246
Dr. Lori Elis - Room 244
Dr. Nicole Hendrix - Room 243

The guiding principle behind the planning and subsequent construction of the new College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences (CHBS) building was to design learning spaces that would simulate professional work environments Radford students will enter following graduation. One unique space at Radford University is the courtroom located in the new CHBS building.
