Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies

The Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the cause of crime and society‚Äôs response to crime. FHSU graduates are uniquely qualified and prepared to enter one of the many careers related to criminal justice, including state and federal special agents; U.S. Secret Service; U.S. Marshals; customs agents; court administrators; law enforcement agents; security, correction, parole, probation and community correction officers; juvenile intake personnel; and victim services personnel. The majority of distance education students pursuing a degree in Justice Studies are adult learners, going back to school to finish or start a degree in order to change careers, obtain a promotion or increase their salary. A number of our students are already criminal justice practitioners and military veterans employed at the local, state or federal level.  The Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies is an accredited program, falling under the auspices of the Northeastern Associate of Criminal Justice Sciences.  FHSU accepts previous credit and the Department of Justice Studies provides job placement assistance.
