Undergraduate Online Degree Completion


The Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Central Missouri offers an online bachelor’s degree completion program so busy students can finish their degree without sacrificing quality or affordability.

The field of criminal justice is broad and encompasses many career paths.  Our alumni are employed in numerous police and corrections agencies, as judges, attorneys, juvenile justice professionals, professors and chief administrators in all parts of the world.

Students choose this program because they desire flexibility and are determined to complete their education.  To be successful in any criminal justice career students must be skilled in critical thinking, the ability to work in a team, and have strong written and verbal communication skills.  Students enrolled in online classes gain these skills and receive the same quality instruction as students enrolled in classes on campus.  In addition, students are given the tools needed to be successful in their search for employment upon graduation.
