One Night a Week at Locations Close to Home
If you’ve made the study of crime and social justice your career and want a competitive edge, or if you’re looking to break into the field, Keuka College’s B.S. in Criminal Justice Systems can help you meet your goals.
With courses covering topics on all aspects of the criminal justice system–from contemporary issues in juvenile crime and delinquency to theories and practices surrounding punishment and corrections, you’ll enhance your analytical skills and gain a firm foundation in research to support investigations.
Through hard work and study, our criminal justice program opens the doors for careers in law enforcement, public and private investigations, corrections, probation, education, law, juvenile services or intelligence.
Throughout your program, you’ll complete an Action Research Project (ARP) as the real-world capstone to your studies. You’ll receive the tools to identify a workplace issue and then develop a solution to put into practice. Our students tell us that the results of their ARP are often implemented in their workplace, which builds value for their employer and their career.
The B.S. in Criminal Justice curriculum consists of 19 courses and 56 credit hours. For planning purposes, classes meet one night each week for four hours. Students spend additional time outside of class to complete readings, assignments, case studies, online discussions, and group work.
