Undergraduate Programs

-Bachelor's Degree

Criminal Justice

Students who choose the Criminal Justice major at SDSU study the development, functions, and structure of the criminal justice system and how this system attempts to control crime and delinquency in our society. In the course of study, students gain a more complete understanding of the complex nature of crime, contemporary issues faced by criminal and juvenile justice practitioners, and the effectiveness of the justice system’s efforts to prevent and control crime in American society. The Criminal Justice major will appeal to undergraduates interested in preparing for a career in policing, corrections, law, or a related field; practitioners who are currently employed in criminal or juvenile justice; and individuals who are generally interested in studying how public policies about crime and its control are created and implemented.

(The Spanish major is only open for students who have taken AP Spanish Language and have obtained a score of 3 or higher).

Did you know that Spanish is the fourth most widely spoken language in the world? And that the United States ranks fourth among countries with the highest population of Spanish speakers, with Mexico in first place? To keep pace with the rising national and international importance of Spanish, the Department of Spanish at San Diego State University, Imperial Valley offers ample opportunities to develop a career in Spanish or to acquire a solid background in Spanish that could be extremely useful in virtually all professional areas. At San Diego State University, Imperial Valley students can pursue a Bachelor's Degree with a major in Spanish or a minor in Spanish. In addition, they can enroll in elective Spanish courses and also complete some of the course requirements for the Master of Arts degree in Spanish offered at the San Diego campus.
