Criminal Justice Administration

Please note: This program is not currently accepting new enrollments.

To serve and protect: that’s what a degree in Criminal Justice Administration prepares you to do.  Whether you want to work in corrections, the courts, law enforcement, government, or a related field, our coursework will instruct you in the character of corrections, the history of crime and punishment, the role of rehabilitation, the operation of prisons, the conduct of criminal investigations, the scope of juvenile justice and more.  One of the growing fields of study where you can gain valuable knowledge is the field of fraud investigations and e-crimes, such as identity theft, online scams, and credit card fraud.   Coursework can also help you take a deep-dive into terrorism, crime scene processing, criminal profiling, police operations and more. 

A bachelor’s degree in criminal justice can prepare you for law school or a master’s program, or for a career in the public or private sector, working for municipal, county, state, or federal governments, or private employers.

Opportunities for graduates with a Criminal Justice Administration (CJA) degree are expected to continue to grow––perhaps dramatically––due to the expected retirement of large numbers of baby boomers in the coming years. This phenomenon will greatly impact federal and state agencies, leading to more job openings in the areas of administrative services, law enforcement, homeland security, corrections and the justice system.
