Criminal Justice Degree

Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice BS degree with a concentration in Criminal Justice offers an option for a 4-year degree that encompasses all aspects of the criminal justice system including:

  • Law enforcement
  • Corrections
  • Court systems
  • Victim and offender social issues

Students graduating from the CJ concentration find employment with local and state policing agencies, jails and prisons, local and state court systems, victim’s advocacy offices, and counseling and rehabilitation facilities.

The curriculum includes 28 hours of required courses and 18 hours of elective courses. In addition to the WSU General Education requirements, it is strongly recommended that you declare a minor of your choice so that you can easily complete the 120 total credit hours and 40 hours of upper division credit hours (courses numbered 3000 or higher) required for a Bachelor's degree.
