Bachelor of Science in Criminology - Law Enforcement Option - Continuing & Global Education California State University, Fresno
Criminology courses at the undergraduate level include the integration of theoretical and applied materials of an interdisciplinary nature. The law enforcement option is designed for students in careers with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, or law enforcement careers within the private sector. Students enrolling in this degree program can anticipate promotions within their agencies and earn increased qualifications for various positions within criminal justice agencies.
This online degree completion program is offered exclusively to current and former employees and their spouses from any local, state, or federal government entity. The program has been in operation for seven years.
Eligible students may join the program at any point. Classes begin at various times throughout each semester. Classes are not normally scheduled during the months of June, July, December, and January.
Students taking both courses during each two-month cycle can complete their upper-division criminology degree requirements in the Law Enforcement option within two years. Classes are accelerated, meet face-to-face on Monday and/or Wednesday evenings, and each class meets all day on one Saturday per month. Some instructions may be online.
Criminology faculty members are experts in their field. The online program provides the same courses required for the B.S. in criminology on campus and the majority of the courses are taught by tenured or tenure-track full-time faculty from the Fresno State campus.
