Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice is both an idea and a process which seeks to define and apply our belief of what is morally and socially acceptable. This major prepares students for work in careers of service to local, state, and even national constituencies upon graduation.

In this program, students will gain knowledge about deviant behavior, forensics, the legal process, the dynamics of law enforcement, and other topics related to the American justice system. If someone is interested in becoming a correctional officer, a lawyer, or a rehabilitation specialist, this major will lay a solid foundation for such careers.

The program is available both on campus and online. The online version is a bachelor’s degree completion program for adults who possess at least 49 hours of college credit and work experience. The program is designed to provide the opportunity for qualified individuals to complete the requirements for the degree while maintaining full-time employment.
