Develop the critical skills needed to become successful in the multidimensional field of Criminal Justice

At Drexel, the online accredited Criminal Justice program goes beyond the narrow "police science" focus of many programs, offering a rigorous academic foundation supplemented by specialized coursework that prepares students for a wide range of professional positions or for graduate study.  Students gain a strong background in criminology, the study of crime and criminal behavior, as well as an understanding of the history, structure, administration, policies, and procedures of the agencies of crime control and criminal justice, including law enforcement, corrections, and the judiciary. 

I think your classes are some of the best I have ever taken” - current Criminal Justice Student, Janice Bechtel
