The online Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice is rooted in legal education and built on a framework of constitutional law.
The Criminal Justice program will prepare students by providing an understanding of how the criminal justice system operates internally in response to various types of crime. Students will learn how the federal criminal justice and representative systems differ constitutionally, procedurally, and organizationally. The program balances the need for law and order with the need for due process of law, ensuring fair treatment for both the victims and the defendants.
