Bachelor in Criminal Justice (BCJ)


The Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice (BCrimJus) is one of those unique offerings and opportunities. It is designed that the student will gain the skills and knowledge to prepare for a career in law enforcement, the justice system, corrections, security, and social services.

Students will apply criminal justice theories to current issues as they gain perspective in three vitally important areas:

  • Civic engagement, social responsibility, and global awareness

  • This program contributes to mutual understanding and co-operation between the present criminal justice disciplines of police, prosecution authorities and corrections.
