Online Criminal Justice Programs

Today’s criminals are more sophisticated than those of the past, engaging the latest technologies to commit—and get away with—illegal acts. Modern criminal justice professionals must be equally savvy to stay at the forefront with the ever-changing landscape of domestic and international crime.

In Walden’s graduate programs in criminal justice, you will study a unique blend of criminal behavior theory along with technology, homeland security, and management skills applicable to the challenges facing the law enforcement community. You will evaluate the root causes of crime and its impact on criminal justice practices and procedures and analyze how law enforcement, courts, and corrections function and interact at the local, state, and federal level.

In Walden’s BS in Criminal Justice program, you can help prepare for a career in law enforcement, the justice system, corrections, or social services. Learn from the use of computer generated crime scene scenarios.

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the demand for criminal justice and security professionals is at an all-time high.* Choose from bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs, all taught by expert faculty members and all of which offer a variety of specializations and concentrations to align with your goals and interests.
