This program is designed for Criminal Justice students who have an interest in law school or a law-related career. Courses will introduce students to a variety of practice areas while honing the same skills and knowledge as the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice but with an emphasis on the discipline and practice of developing and adjudicating law. Through additional courses in business, management, political science, and law, this concentration will provide a sound foundation for further legal education and subsequent careers. It will help students to develop the important analytical skills and personal values necessary for a law-related career.
The Criminal Justice - Law degree program is available online. Online programs have the same content and curriculum as traditional on-campus programs. All coursework, including lectures, assignments, and exams, is available through the Canvas online learning system.
Online programs are asynchronous, which means there are no specific times you must be online. Professors and other instructors are available during virtual “office hours” for discussion. The programs are designed to allow you to focus on two courses in eight-week terms.
As an online student, you may be eligible to transfer credits from other accredited colleges. Learn more about our online program admission requirements.
In addition to all career opportunities afforded students with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice, the law concentration better prepares graduates for admission to law school.
