The Criminal Justice BS program at SUNY Delhi integrates theory and practice and will prepare you for a career in criminal justice—whether you seek a career in policing or investigation, juvenile justice, probation, or corrections. Students interested in other areas of law enforcement can focus on those areas to prepare themselves for further study in criminal justice, public safety, criminal investigation, private security, or political science.
Students have the option to complete the degree fully online or on the Schenectady County Community College campus. Learn more about the offsite program partnership at SCCC >
Students complete coursework in each of the six areas identified by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, a key professional and certifying organization in the field of criminal justice studies.
Students will have ready access to academic advisement, support services, Delhi's online library resources, and financial aid assistance.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics and the federal Department of Justice have estimated employment opportunities to be "excellent" in criminal justice and law enforcement. While an associate degree is often sufficient for entry level employment in criminal justice, a baccalaureate degree provides the flexibility for entry into the field as well as advancement to managerial positions. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists a baccalaureate degree, related work experience, or a combination of both as a requirement for employment in agencies at the federal level related to this field.
