The BA degree in Criminal Justice consists of the core course in criminal justice (listed below), criminal justice electives and hours of a foreign language (e.g., Spanish, French, American Sign, etc.). This degree prepares student for careers such as corrections, law enforcement, government agencies, law and judiciary, advocacy, forensics, security, customs and border patrol, probation and parole, crime victim assistance and advocacy, military intelligence, and crime analysis and investigation.
What makes the BA degree different from the BS degree are the additional requirements. While the BA consists of additional hours of a foreign language, the BS degree consists of additional hours of social science (e.g., psychology, sociology, political science, etc).
