U.S. law exists to promote public safety and protect human rights. Those who work in criminal justice focus on ensuring that those laws are upheld, our citizens are protected, and guilty criminals are prosecuted in the most ethical way possible.
Norwich University’s Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice program provides working adults in the military, law enforcement, and other parts of the public sector fields with the knowledge, skills, and credentials needed to advance or evolve their careers. Built on top of a relevant foundation of general education courses, our program curriculum explores the principles and processes of criminal justice as they relate to the organization and operation of the police, courts, and corrections system. Key skills developed throughout the program include social science research, data analysis and writing, ethical problem solving, and leadership.
Students can tailor their degree by pursuing a minor in either public safety and law enforcement or intelligence and security management. Those with more specific career interests can shape their academic experience by selecting the degree elective courses that meet their unique goals.
