Bachelor of Arts

Criminal Justice

Starting with the basics, our Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice program will provide you with a solid foundation in crime, ethics and justice.

You’ll gain a broad yet specialized understanding of the field by exploring related topics in psychology and political studies. And once you’ve mastered those principles, our program will continue to provide you with a deep knowledge of the U.S. criminal justice system and its role within the global picture.

You’ll have plenty of hands-on opportunities, too. You’ll visit local law enforcement agencies and speak with professionals in the field. You may even intern there, or at another national or international law enforcement office. At Lynn, we guarantee plenty of opportunities for you to network with criminal justice professionals.
