Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice
Criminal Justice is an exciting and ever-changing field of study, with new information gained each day. New technology and techniques continually push the boundaries of information gathering in Criminal Justice and students will become conversant in these areas. The Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree program gives students the opportunity to study the fascinating issues of crime and justice, and prepares them to enter the field at entry and middle management levels. It is an interdisciplinary study of law enforcement, judicial courts, and correctional systems within political structures with attention given to legal, social, managerial, and administrative issues.
Students will learn both practical and theoretical applications to components of the criminal justice system, emphasizing the decision-making process and consequences inherent with legal and social influences. As our society continues to grow, so does the need for careers in this field.
