Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice Systems
The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Systems is an integrated program focused on prevention, enforcement, intervention and disposition from local, state, national and global perspectives.
Systems of study include law enforcement, victim and offender services, legal, courts, corrections, and probation and parole. The program expands these perspectives to include innovative public health models and community engagement. Students exit the Criminal Justice degree program prepared to lead and respond effectively to complex social justice needs.
Alliant’s undergraduate Criminal Justice major is offered in San Diego by the California School of Forensic Studies (CSFS).
As part of its goal to prepare students to enter the workforce, the Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice program places an emphasis on real-world, hands-on experiences. An important component of the program is the nine-unit capstone sequence where students gain considerable practical training through two field placements – something not typical of most undergraduate Criminal Justice degree programs.
