Located on the West side of Manhattan, John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York is a public liberal arts college and one of the preeminent national and international leaders in education for criminal justice and public service. John Jay is an institution dedicated to education, research and service in the fields of criminal justice, fire science and related areas of public safety and public service. Its history dates back to the 1954, when a Police Science Program was established at the Baruch School of Business and Public Administration of City College. This program expanded more and more over the next decade until 1964 when the Board of Higher Education decided to create an independent degree-granting school of public service. In September 1965, the College of Police Science of the City University of New York admitted its first class of students. After the first year of classes, the school was renamed John Jay College of Criminal Justice to honor the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and to reflect the college’s broad education objectives in the process of criminal justice, development of leadership and emphasis on professional achievement in public service.
Today John Jay is home to over over 15,000 students, including 13,000 undergraduates and 2,000 graduate students in two doctoral and eight master’s programs. John Jay is proud to have a diverse student body: about a quarter of students today were born in different countries, half speak a language other than English at home, and like the first John Jay students, most are the first in their families to attend college. Students pursue degrees that will lead them to a wide array of professions including policing, forensic science, law practice, fire protection, teaching, social work, forensic psychology, and corrections.
