Criminal Justice B.S.

The LCIE bachelor of science degree in criminal justice requires 128 semester hours including 45 semester hours in the major itself. The Criminal Justice program is designed to provide a broad based education in the criminal justice field. Upon completion of the program, students should be prepared to enter into the criminal justice career field or pursue further academic study.

Completion of the capstone course is a requirement for the program and may be taken only after all core course requirements have been met or concurrently with the final cluster. The capstone course will emphasize the theories and concepts of the major from an academic viewpoint as well as their practical applications in the professional setting. The course requires a mastery of the concepts within the major and integrates academic studies with issues faced by practicing professionals in their area of employment. Consequently, students should expect midterm and final examinations, case analyses, and at least one major research paper during the term of enrollment. A grade of “C” or above is necessary to pass the capstone course.
