NKU's CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROGRAM RANKED 25TH ON THE LIST OF BEST ONLINE BACHELOR'S IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROGRAMS OF 2018
A Broad, Liberal Education
The Criminal Justice Program provides a conceptual understanding of criminal justice institutions and processes, theories of crime and punishment, criminal law, and social science research methods through its core courses.
Our program studies the administration of justice and the resolution of conflict within society. With courses that focus on the three major aspects of the criminal justice system – police, courts, and corrections – we prepare students for graduate studies or careers in related fields.
We offer a Bachelor of Arts degree (also available online), criminal justice minor, and criminalistics minor.
Rather than training individuals for a particular occupation through instruction in specific vocational skills, our program offers a broad, liberal education focused on the cultivation of analytical and creative thought and on the ability to read, write and speak effectively.
Students are able to pursue a bachelor of arts degree or an associates of arts degree by attending online classes. Online classes are conducted by our on-campus faculty members. Students will engage in the same critical examination of criminal justice issues and solutions as they do in the traditional classroom. Students must choose either the online or classroom option.
