To you, safety and security are the most important issues in your community — and the world around you. You recognize the need for the protection of both people and property, and you want to be the one to help make a difference.
The College of Criminal Justice and Security is dedicated to providing a range of degree programs to help you do just that.
(Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a certificate as well as your degree.)
By selecting our certificates, you can earn two credentials by the time you graduate — at no additional cost or time. Take career-focused courses and earn a certificate in your area of interest in addition to your Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration degree.
Through our undergraduate and graduate programs, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of criminal justice and security best practices and cultivate leadership skills that can last a lifetime. We offer specialized areas of study in management, human services and health care, as well as programs that provide a greater awareness of the impact technology has made in private and public sector security.
Our faculty members have extensive experience in their respective fields. That means you'll have the opportunity to learn from many current and former chiefs of police, sheriffs, judges, wardens and security executives. With curricula that emphasize current theories, as well as real-world situations, you’ll quickly see how you can have a positive influence in your community.
