Criminal Justice Degree and Certification Programs


Although the program is primarily on campus, all core classes in the major are also offered online, along with three online options for a minor and certificates.  Majority of the requirements for the degree can therefore be completed online, or in a hybrid format if desired.  The combination of a strong liberal arts curriculum with a rigorous set of core classes and specialized elective coursework covering a broad area of specialties may be created with the guidance of an advisor from the extensive areas covered by the numerous electives offered. Examples include law enforcement, corrections and community crime prevention among others, making our criminal justice degree and certificate programs unique and exciting.
