Explore the range of criminal justice programs we have online, to help you start a criminal justice career or advance the career you’re in.
Crime has changed. It has no borders. It threatens to enter every part of our lives. So crime prevention and criminal investigation have changed, too. A Strayer bachelor’s degree in criminal justice combines traditional study of criminology and criminal behavior with practical, modern skills like crime mapping, report writing and forensics.
Today, many police and corrections agencies require education beyond their entrance exams. You can develop the communications skills, information literacy, abstract thinking, and critical analysis that will allow you to take the next step in the criminal justice system. Advance your career in fraud detection, juvenile crime, computer forensics or any one of a number of emerging criminal justice specialties with a Strayer degree.
