Criminal Justice

NNU's Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice provides a general foundation in the theories, models, and methods of investigation in criminology, and in the fields and practices within criminal justice. To ensure your education includes more than a textbook, this program requires hands-on experience including completing a criminal justice practicum. Upon graduation, students are prepared for entry level work in a variety of occupations—law enforcement, attorney, prosecuting attorney’s assistant, private investigators, intelligence officer—in the field of criminal justice or graduate training in the field.
The mission of the Criminal Justice major is to graduate individuals who are:
  • Prepared to enter occupations or graduate study in the field with strong liberal arts skills (acquire information from a variety of sources; communicate clearly and effectively in written and oral formats; understand and work effectively with individuals from a variety of backgrounds; and think critically and make informed decisions).
  • Competent in the theories, models, and methods of investigation in criminology, and in the fields and practices within criminal justice.
  • Who carry into their professional work the university outcomes of Christlike character, academic excellence, social responsiveness, and creative engagement.

SPOTLIGHT

The professors are awesome. They are all open to conversation to any kind of question I ever had. Every single professor was open to discuss. That's incredible for me because where I am from people are not like that. I have a really good relationship with all of them here and they are always open to talk with me. They give me a ton of advice.
