In our increasingly complex world, criminals and criminal organizations are more sophisticated than ever. Along with so-called traditional activities — such as drug trafficking, street crime and extortion — they also employ computers and the Internet to threaten our security.
As the criminal activity becomes more complex and global in scope, law enforcement agencies seek a new generation of highly trained and educated criminal justice professionals. Job opportunities for police and detectives are expected to rise by 10 per cent over the next decade; for criminal investigators, job growth will be as high as 17 per cent.
You can prepare for these highly sought-after opportunities through the Bachelor of Science Degree Program in Criminal Justice at St. John's. Offered by the Collins College of Professional Studies, this 120-credit program prepares students for career opportunities in the criminal justice field, including the public sector and all government levels. Additionally, private sector organizations increasingly seek to hire professionals in the field.
