The American justice system is no longer abstract theory, but daily reality. The specter of international and domestic terrorism, the high-tech sophistication of cyber-crime, our fascination with modern criminal investigation all point to justice studies as a vital, growing field offering multiple career paths.
Unlike programs that focus on only one aspect of the justice model, such as law enforcement, the SNHU justice studies BS provides a sweeping overview of the justice system, criminal law, corrections systems, legal and social science research, international criminal justice and more.
Students tailor the program to their career goals, complimenting traditional justice studies courses with undergraduate classes in such aligned areas as business, psychology, sociology, political science, and philosophy.
