We offer a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science degree in criminal justice. Our Master of Science program in Criminal Justice will be offered online with four synchronous sessions beginning Fall 2017.
Students are encouraged to become members and leaders in LAE (Lambda Alpha Epsilon) and/or APS (Alpha Phi Sigma).
Students are most successful when focusing on a career or obtaining a summer internship.
Criminal justice is the study of crime control and the justice system through the lens of law enforcement, courts, and correctional agencies. Criminology is the study of crime and criminal behavior, focusing on the causes of criminal behavior through the use of scientific methodology. Criminal justice and criminology are interdisciplinary fields that draw upon the knowledge bases of sociology, psychology, law, public policy and other related disciplines to develop insights into the causes, control, and prevention of criminal behavior.
