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.

According the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a wide variety of positions in government agencies such as in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Agency and U.S. Marshals Department are expected to see a 13.4 percent growth through 2016.
