Program Overview

 

The Prebachelor of Criminal Justice major program designates students who intend to declare the Bachelor of Criminal Justice major code (BC2209), but who have not yet satisfied the admission requirement by completing an applied associate’s degree in a technical area related to criminal justice, such as law enforcement, corrections technology, police administration, legal assisting, human services, or another similar discipline.



Admissions Information


Freshman/First-Year Admission

The Bachelor of Criminal Justice program is a completion degree. To earn the degree, students must also earn an associate’s degree in law enforcement technology or a similar discipline. Students without a completed associate’s degree who wish to pursue the Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree will enter Ohio University in the Prebachelor of Criminal Justice major code (ND2210) and will work to simultaneously earn the associate’s degree in law enforcement technology and the Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree.

 

Change of Program Policy

Students with an earned associate’s degree in an appropriate field will enter directly into the Bachelor of Criminal Justice major code (BC2209). Students without a completed associate’s degree who wish to pursue the Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree will enter Ohio University in the Prebachelor of Criminal Justice major code (ND2210) and will work simultaneously to earn an associate’s degree in law enforcement technology and the Bachelor of Criminal Justice degree.
