Criminal justice is a social science that focuses on the definitions, causes, and prevention of crime; legal processes; and the treatment and rehabilitation of offenders.
The online Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice explores crime, criminals, and the criminal justice system through an interdisciplinary approach that combines legal studies, sociology, political science, psychology, forensic science, public administration, urban studies, and philosophy. You study a myriad of topics related to theories about crime, public policy, law, criminal courts, policing, corrections, juvenile justice, and the practice of criminal justice. As a graduate of the program, you will be well prepared to attend graduate or law school.
