Criminal Justice Program

As the number of jobs in the criminal justice field continue to rise, so too does the demand for highly trained and educated law enforcement, corrections, and court officers, agents, and administrators. William Carey University offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in criminal justice that will prepare and equip students to successfully pursue career paths that can lead to a wide variety of employment and growth options with federal, state, and local criminal justice agencies, as well as the private sector. From Homeland Security to the local police department, the WCU program in Criminal Justice will prepare students today to take their place tomorrow as the next generation of leaders and policy makers who are on the cutting edge of crime fighting in the 21st century. The Criminal Justice Program is hosted at the Tradition Campus. However, the undergraduate criminal justice major/minor is open to students of both campuses through online course offerings and varied scheduling of on-site criminal justice classes. The Criminal Justice Master's Program is a practitioner based program offered fully online.
