Program Requirements

The Criminal Justice Online program includes the same courses, requirements and standards as the on-campus program. 


Full-time students

The courses in the Criminal Justice Online program are offered completely online. Full-time students may follow a specific series of course blocks which can lead to the completion of the criminal justice major in as few as 10 months. 

Part-time students

Students may chose to take fewer courses at a time if they wish to work full time while they attend school, therefore it is not a requirement that online students complete the major in the 10-month period.

Students who have some of the required courses completed will enter into the online CJ courses that they need when they are offered. 

Course Sequence

Full-time and part-time students have the same course options. Two or three courses are offered during each session. For a detailed schedule description, contact the program director, Dr. Victoria Beck, at
