For more than 40 years, the Department of Administration
of Justice at Salve Regina has been preparing students for meaningful and fulfilling
careers in the justice system. Our reputation for success is exemplified by our
2,500 graduates currently serving as judges, lawyers, police officers, special
agents, attorneys and child protective workers across the country.
On campus, our majors form intimate bonds with faculty
members in their small classes, where interactive role playing, debate and
discussion are the preferred methods of instruction. Beyond campus,
experiential learning opportunities abound - from interning with the U.S. Secret
Service to tutoring delinquent youth at the Rhode Island Training School.
Extracurricular activities include the national criminal
justice honor society and the ADJ Club, which sponsors guest speakers and
social gatherings. The department's annual Law Day features a keynote address
from a prestigious alumnus, award ceremonies and interaction with criminal
justice professionals. Administration of justice students benefit from our
impressive alumni base with networking events and sponsored internships, which
may open doors to future careers.
Our graduates enter such fields as juvenile justice,
state and federal law enforcement, forensics, private security and corrections;
many go on to law or other graduate schools.
Through the department's increasingly popular
accelerated program, highly motivated and qualified undergraduates can earn
both a bachelor's and master's degree within five years.
