SLU’s criminology and criminal justice degree prepares you to take on leadership roles in a variety of community settings. Part-time and full-time degree options are available.
Students can select one of the following areas to be the focus of their studies:
Administration of Justice
You'll prepare for leadership roles in justice-serving organizations through coursework designed to increase your knowledge about the justice system, techniques and challenges of administration and issues in jurisprudence. Integrate the knowledge you’ll develop through rigorous coursework with community-based learning opportunities to begin creating solutions to complex social and organizational challenges.
Justice personnel can be among the first responders to a crisis. Learn critical thinking, leadership and crisis management skills through seminars and challenging simulations that put your academic knowledge to the test. All courses in this concentration are offered online.
Treatment and Rehabilitation
Gain an in-depth understanding of essential human behavior, issues related to the treatment of high-risk populations and evidence-based practices for improving the health of offenders and the communities in which they reside. A blend of in-class training and community-based practice experiences prepares you to become an effective treatment agent.
