Criminal Justice

Modern criminals are more sophisticated than ever, and criminal justice professionals must be well-trained to confront criminal behavior head-on. Our program is ideal for students who wish to start a career as an officer of the law, a criminal investigator, or in the correctional system.

In our criminal Justice program, you’ll learn the latest crime fighting and investigation techniques from the men and women who worked in the field. Our criminal justice faculty members include former police officers, federal law enforcement officers, police chiefs, crime scene investigators, and homicide detectives.
