Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice


The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Program prepares students for careers in the sub-agencies of the criminal justice system and for continued education in professional and graduate schools. National and international themes related to contemporary challenges to the police, courts, and corrections are among those studied and explored in theory and in practice through a diverse curriculum. The Criminal Justice Program seeks to educate students in the skills required for a successful professional career.
