Overview

Earn Your Degree and Make a Difference in the Criminal Justice Field 

100 percent online degree-completion program allows you to work full-time while studying 

Working within the criminal justice system is about more than punching a clock. For most, it is following a passion for righting wrongs and answering a call to compassionate servant leadership. It means being dedicated to investing in improving society and helping the “least of these.”   

You’re also burdened by the current brokenness of the criminal justice system. You want to work in a profession where you can effect change, help others and make the world a better place. With a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, you’ll have the opportunity to work towards effective solutions for positive change, helping to repair and rebuild the system from the inside out. 

At Trevecca, we know that your job is crucial—both to you and to the community you serve. But we also realize that completing your college degree is important, too. That’s why the Bachelor of Science in criminal justice program is ideal for those who are currently working within the criminal justice field.      

You can complete your bachelor’s degree while working full-time in the job you love. We’ve designed the Bachelor of Science in criminal justice as a degree-completion program targeted to employed professionals just like you. 

This degree is 100 percent online, designed to fit into your busy schedule and can be completed in three semesters. Our goal is to help students become effective servant leaders and promote rank either by transfer to another agency or within their current employment agencies within the law enforcement, corrections or criminal justice-oriented settings. 

“We’re dealing with a broken world and a broken criminal justice system, and we want to focus on healing and reform in this program,” Craig Bishop, Program Director Criminal Justice Program, School of Graduate and Continuing Studies, said. “Within the professions of criminal justice, we are dealing with individuals who are broken and hurting. We need more empathy and compassion within the system, professionals who allow the Lord to use their gifts and talents to minister in others’ lives, whether it’s a victim or an offender. It’s just a tremendous ministry opportunity.”

Earning your criminal justice degree means you’ll become a more accomplished law enforcement professional, equipped to bring healing and reform through compassionate servant leadership where it’s so desperately needed.    

Objectives 

Graduates with a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice will advance in their understanding of the theories, models and practices applied within each profession of the criminal justice system.

Students will be assessed on their performance of assignments related to: 

  • Administration of justice, including correctional processes, criminological theory, law adjudication, law enforcement and juvenile justice
  • Critical thinking and reasoning skills 
  • Professionalism including legal conduct and behavior, integrity, ethics, interpersonal relationships, problem solving, communications, diversity, fairness and equality
  • Research and analytical methods
