Students who pursue the Criminal Justice major can earn either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) in Criminal Justice.

There are two available tracks leading to these degrees:

  • traditional on-campus track, and
  • an online track that has been designed for non-traditional students who have previously earned an Associate Degree from an accredited university or college, or have current career related experience within criminal justice.  For more specific information on the Online Criminal Justice Major, click here.

These are separate tracks leading the Criminal Justice Major, and students can only follow one of these tracks.
