The Cedarville University criminal justice curriculum is academically rigorous while providing flexible learning opportunities for students.
Students take courses from the whole spectrum of the criminal justice field — including law enforcement, courts, and corrections — that prepare them for graduate studies or entry-level positions in a variety of criminal justice jobs. Each course is taught from a biblical worldview, preparing students to be leaders who serve with integrity.
Along with rigorous courses in the program, students can take advantage of a variety of electives, including off-campus semester experiences in Washington, D.C., or at local nonprofit partner organizations. Students are also required to complete an internship, which provides valuable job experience and complements their degree. Cedarville’ criminal justice society, Alpha Delta Nu, is a student-led organization that hosts relevant speakers and provides training and mentoring opportunities for students.
