Crime Analysis Concentration - Track One
Leads to: Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, Minor in Computer Science and a Certificate in Crime Analysis
Track One offers a structured course of study leading to a BS Degree in Criminal Justice, a Minor in Computer Science and a Certificate in Crime Analysis. The program requires a minimum of 99 credits. It is designed for pre-service students (i.e. individuals not holding a Bachelors degree and planning to secure employment in a criminal justice agency in the future).
This option focuses on learning in three disciplines: Crime Justice, Crime Analysis and Computer Science. Because students will be working with confidential and sensitive information within a criminal justice agency during their course of study, they should be able to pass a police background check. Track One requires completion of the following coursework.
Core Criminal Justice Courses (44 credits)
Core Crime Analysis Courses (28 credits)
Additional Electives (Recommended but not required)
Computer Science Minor (27 credits)
Schedule of Classes
While other coursework may be taken at the student's convenience, a cohort of approximately 25 students forms each Summer Term to begin a sequence of crime analysis and computer science classes that run concurrently through a 12 month cycle (see the table below to learn more about the cycle). Without the approval of concerned faculty, courses may not be taken out of sequence. Students who fail to complete the whole sequence will have to wait until the following year to join a new cohort at the appropriate stage.
