About

Go for a BS in Justice Studies - Crime and Criminology at Southern New Hampshire University

Unlike programs that focus on only one aspect of the justice model, such as law enforcement, the SNHU program provides an overview of the justice system, criminal law, corrections systems, legal and social science research, and more.

Students tailor the program according to their career goals. All students take courses in policing and law enforcement, crime and criminology, and law and legal processes. In light of the professional nature of the justice system, students also are encouraged to explore courses in such aligned areas as business, psychology, sociology, information technology, and political science.

Graduates will find the job outlook in the justice studies industry is healthy. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, two areas with exceptional growth projections through 2024 include probation officers and correctional treatment specialists (with 4% estimated growth) and arbitrators, mediators, and conciliators (9%).
