Criminal Justice: Home

The Criminal Justice program provides students with an education based in a liberal arts core and interdisciplinary criminal justice curriculum. The criminal justice aspect focuses on law, law enforcement, and corrections.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Criminal Justice Research Guide!

Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.

Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.

Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.

A portion of the Criminal Justice-based OERs that the RCBC library welcomes you to use are websites to help find employment in your chosen field as well as lists of government resources and free textbooks with titles such as  “Ethics in Law Enforcement” and “Global Justice”.
