About

Unlike programs that focus on only one aspect of the justice model, such as law enforcement, SNHU's justice studies major provides an overview of the entire justice system.

See Yourself Succeed in Justice Studies

Students may complete the associate degree program in the traditional two years or through an accelerated schedule, which includes an internship. In addition, students may continue on with the BS or MS in Justice Studies, allowing students to advance both their education and employment opportunities.

As a private, nonprofit university, SNHU has one mission - to help you see yourself succeed.
