Criminal Justice


Whether you’re new to the field of criminal justice or are already a seasoned veteran, our criminal justice degree program will provide you with the education and theoretical knowledge you’ll need to take your career to a new level.

Starting with the basics, our Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice program will ensure that you understand the fundamentals 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.
