Undergraduate Major Justice Studies Policing & Law Enforcement

Go for a BS in Justice Studies with a Policing & Law Enforcement concentration

Go discover the inner workings and the broad scope of the American justice system through the Southern New Hampshire University Bachelor of Science in Justice Studies with a concentration in Policing and Law Enforcement program.

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.

Students may complete the program in the traditional four years. In addition, students may also pursue a four-plus-one program in which they earn both the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in five years. Our graduate program is delivered online allowing students to continue their studies while satisfying employment and family duties.
