Friends University offers a new Criminal Justice Degree this fall

Friends University will begin offering a new Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree program beginning this fall. The new degree will be offered to adult students in the College of Graduate and Professional Studies.

“The bachelor’s degree in criminal justice gives students the opportunity to understand the theories and research of the field and apply that knowledge to current events and real-world situations,” said Dr. Tor Wynn, associate professor sociology and criminology. “They also get the chance to interact with their community, experiencing firsthand how the things they learned in the classroom help them understand what they see in the larger world.”

The new degree is designed with a blend of flexible schedules and frequent program start dates to enable students to remain in their job while gaining more knowledge and work toward advancing in their careers.

The criminal justice system is diverse, and the Friends University criminal justice degree program offers students a solid educational foundation across a broad spectrum of criminal justice topics and issues that are intrinsic to law enforcement and correctional systems. The legal and behavioral concentrations give students the option for a more specific area of study.
