The mission of the Criminal Justice Concentration is to empower the criminal justice practitioner to advocate for meaningful change, within the criminal justice system that will embrace a collaborative effort between the community, and those charged with the administration of justice within that community. The concentration will activate and articulate a construct of an emerging notion of social and economic justice.
Criminal justice professionals face challenging work schedules with very limited spare time. Our flexible program allows you to complete your degree in a hybrid format: in the evenings, on the weekends, and in an online format.
Students in this bachelor's in human services program will also complete a diversity of core courses, which reflect the integration of theory and practice, the nature and function of society, and promote the responsibilities of global citizenship. To graduate, you will need 120 credits, 48 of which much be completed at Springfield College.
Students may take the required and elective courses at Springfield College, or may transfer in courses from other regionally accredited higher education institutions, or credits may be awarded through the experiential learning process as outlines by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning.
