          Dr. George Richards was named EU’s 2017 Advisor of the Year.

            Edinboro University’s Department of Criminal Justice, Anthropology, and Forensic Studies seeks to empower students as outstanding citizens and leaders by promoting creative and critical thinking, self-growth, empathy and moral responsibility toward others, and an enduring respect for knowledge and its practical applications. The Department is distinguished by outstanding faculty members who possess wide-ranging expertise in policing, corrections and criminology, as well as real-world experience as forensic scientists, criminal investigators, probation officers and anthropologists.  

            The Department endeavors to create a synergy between academic disciplines by harnessing the fundamentals of the social sciences: the scientific method, theoretically and methodically sound research and the dissemination of research to academic communities and to the broader public for the greater good of society. Graduates of the department possess a broad spectrum of research, analytical, and communication skills, as well as in-depth knowledge of their major. Students will also develop an appreciation for interdisciplinary endeavors and life-long learning.

            Because of the sophisticated educational experience students receive, alumni have found success as federal, state, and local law enforcement agents and investigators; prison managers, probation officers, and other types of corrections officials; archaeologists and university professors and teachers.
