With a criminal justice and homeland security degree from Indiana University Kokomo, you get the best of both worlds: a liberal arts education where you're encouraged to think critically and hands-on, experiential learning at the same time. While you're earning this bachelor's degree, you'll gain a broad understanding of the criminal justice system with courses ranging from Correctional Law to Terrorism and Public Policy.
With this degree, you'll learn to apply problem-solving skills to the real-world issues we see every day, all around us. A Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security prepares you to work in law enforcement, corrections, victim advocacy, homeland security, emergency management, loss prevention, and other fields. Our program will also prepare you for graduate studies in criminal justice, criminology, social work, sociology, and law. The required coursework gets you ready for positions in public management by teaching you policy analysis, budgeting, and public affairs.
