The B.S. degree in Criminal Justice is designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the nature of crime and criminal law in society as well as the workings of police, courts, and corrections—the essential components of the criminal justice system. Students will be equipped with the necessary skills and insights to understand the complex issues surrounding crime and the criminal population.
Students pursuing the B.S. in Criminal Justice within Professional Studies would be expected to have post secondary education and training and have acquired, through experience, the skills and knowledge appropriate to the degree.
The Department reserves the right to require an additional English writing course(s) at any point in a student’s program if deemed appropriate based on the student’s writing level.
