Bryan College Announces Online Criminal Justice Degree

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Criminal Justice will now be offered as an online degree program by Bryan College. Applications for the program are now being accepted for the Spring 2018 semester. 

The online bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice provides students with the understanding of how the criminal justice system operates within various types of cases and scenarios. Students will also receive the opportunity to learn constitutional, procedural, and organizational differentiations between the federal, state and local criminal justice systems. Along with this information, they’ll be able to interact with professionals who work within the criminal justice system on a daily basis. 

Bryan College is committed to providing accessible education to those enrolling in their programs, said officials. While the program has been on campus for several years, this is the first time for the online offering. 

“We are excited to introduce this program at Bryan College," said Dr. Adina Scruggs, dean of Adult and Graduate Studies.  "It’s been a few years in the making, but we are thrilled to see this program come to fruition.  With several courses rooted in constitutional law and public policy, the foundation for this program builds upon the legislative framework of our country and how that knowledge is carried out to enforce the law.  This degree is a great preparation for anyone interested in a profession related to our government’s legal systems." 

Adjunct Professor David Taylor who will be teaching in the program notes, “Today’s criminal justice professional utilizes the tools of technology, knowledge of the law and the workings of the legal system in which they work on a daily basis. Our program will provide core competencies that will prepare our students to enter the field confidently as well-prepared professionals seeking to make a difference within the field of criminal justice. As Christians, we can temper the law of the land with the law of Christ by providing mercy, grace and accountability. It’s another great example of the ‘Bryan Difference’.”
