WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Degree Awarded: B.A. in Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice Program at NKU provides a conceptual understanding of criminal justice institutions and processes, theories of crime and punishment, criminal law, and social science research methods through its core courses. 

We offer a Bachelor of Arts degree, a criminal justice minor, and criminalistics minor. Rather than training individuals for a particular occupation through instruction in specific vocational skills, our program offers a broad, liberal education focused on the cultivation of analytical and creative thought and on the ability to read, write and speak effectively.
