Criminal Justice back to programs

Within a Christ-centered liberal arts curriculum, the mission of the Criminal Justice program is to provide students with a strong foundation in the studies of criminology, including criminal law, legal systems, corrections, and policing. This program will prepare students to enter advanced programs in legal studies and law enforcement and for allied careers in the criminal justice field. The Criminal Justice program is designed to prepare students for a wide variety of career choices in the areas of law enforcement, cyber-crime, paralegal, and postgraduate work.
