Norwich University Launches New Online Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program in Criminal Justice

Northfield, Vt. (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) has launched its second online degree completion program, the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.

The program, set to begin this month, is designed for working professionals and builds upon prior learning and military training. It is the latest example of Norwich’s ability to expand its online degree program portfolio to meet student demand.

“Norwich has a proud history of training leaders in the military, civilian public sector and private sector for nearly 200 years. Adding the online criminal justice bachelor’s degree program expands on this tradition and highlights our mission of providing innovative learning opportunities for working adults to effect change in their lives,” said Bill Clements, vice president and CGCS dean.

As a leader in criminal justice education for more than 30 years, the online criminal justice program is modeled on the university’s longstanding undergraduate curriculum. Designed to help professionals and lifelong learners achieve their educational and personal goals, the program can be completed entirely online in less than two years.

Program facilitators access each student’s prior learning and military training to determine how it may be applied toward the degree. The goal is to help students get the most out of their Norwich education, while accelerating their bachelor’s degree completion.

With two minors – public safety and law enforcement, and intelligence and security management – the new program offers cutting-edge courses that correlate to the growing fields of law enforcement and security. Students of the program also benefit from knowledgeable faculty who bring extensive academic and professional experience into the classroom.

"I owe a great deal of gratitude to Norwich and remain convinced that I never would have had the chance to advance in my career without the education I received there. At Norwich University teamwork, leadership and time management were stressed from the beginning and remained a constant objective throughout the program,” said Norwich alumnus Eric Johansen, chief of police for the city of Peekskill, N.Y. “I was able to immediately implement these skills at work, earning me praise from both my subordinates and supervisors and ultimately leading to a swift climb from first-line supervisor to chief of police.”

Norwich University’s online Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice degree completion program has rolling admission and offers three start dates throughout the year – January, May and September. For more information, visit Norwich Online.
