Criminal Justice

Do you dream about working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)? How about keeping the computer systems of the federal government or a major corporation safe from international hackers? Do you ever wonder what is going on in the minds of criminals? If you think about these or other questions related to law enforcement, investigations, or the administration of law, a degree in criminal justice from William Peace University is right for you.

The William Peace University Criminal Justice Program consists of inter-disciplinary courses that will help you understand the conditions—psychological and sociological—that lead to criminal behavior. You will also develop a strong understanding of the legal system in the United States, as well as develop some skills, like forensics, that you can use once you graduate. The program at Peace will help you become a leader in the criminal justice field as you prepare for a career after college—whether the career is in law enforcement, Homeland Security, or justice administration. The unique feature of the Criminal Justice Program at William Peace University is a unique learning program—the Raleigh Experience—which will give you hands-on experience working with professionals in areas related to criminal justice. When you graduate, you will be well prepared to pursue a criminal justice career because you already have some experience in the field.
