Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The goal of the Criminal Justice program is to graduate students who are prepared for careers in law enforcement, the court system or corrections. Through this course of study, students are expected to acquire the communication, logic, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning skills essential for the understanding of criminal justice issues and for effective career performance.
The program’s judicious mix of criminal justice, business, technology, and arts & sciences courses, is intended to enhance each student’s appreciation of diversity, citizenship, leadership, science and technology, qualitative and quantitative analysis, and social and business culture.
In keeping with the unique curriculum and varied career opportunities available to graduates of the criminal justice program, and with the advice of the student’s faculty advisor and career advisor, students are encouraged to concentrate in one or more of the programs offered by the School of Arts & Sciences and/ or the College of Business. A student may also pursue a collection of criminal justice electives which target their interests and goals.
Criminal justice students also have the opportunity to participate in an internship. Selected criminal justice students must possess a 2.75 GPA overall and a 2.75 GPA in the Criminal Justice major to take this option.
The bachelor of science degree is beneficial when competing for a first job placement and for career advancement. Typical career tracks for graduates of the criminal justice program may include policing on the local, state or federal levels; court administration; corrections, probation or parole officers; private security and loss prevention managers; and social service providers.
