With our Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Systems, you will arm yourself with mastery of the issues so you can formulate the solutions. Coursework in law enforcement and victim and offender services will give you a complete view of every side of the story. Classes covering the entire legal system from courts to corrections, and probation to parole provide a holistic understanding of the way it works. And the way it should work.
Alliant’s Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice is offered in San Diego by the California School of Forensic Studies (CSFS).
Go Out and Do Good with Hands-On Experience
Many students go through their entire college career without significant hands-on training. Not here.
Alliant places an emphasis on real-world, hands-on experiences. Our Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice Systems offers not one, but two field placements during the course of your degree. Through the nine-unit capstone sequence, you will prepare yourself to enter the workforce by immersing yourself within it.
We do this because we believe that you can’t learn everything in a classroom. Because real-world experience is often the greatest teacher. And because hands-on training is what will set you up for a lifetime of success.
