Bachelor of Art/Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies

The Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies are interdisciplinary programs that focus 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. FHSU accepts previous credit and the Department of Justice Studies provides job placement assistance.
