Welcome to the Criminal Justice Program

hands on computer in police vehicleThe Criminal Justice program at The University of Louisiana Monroe is the oldest of its kind in the state. The undergraduate programs began in 1970 and the graduate program began in 1974. There are currently four full-time faculty members, as well as adjunct faculty (local police, courts, and correctional personnel) and graduate teaching assistants. The programs graduate between 50 and 70 persons each year.

The program offers two degrees: the Bachelor of Arts and the Master of Arts in Criminal Justice. In addition, the faculty provide in-service and continuing education training to law enforcement officers in the northeast Louisiana region, and from surrounding states.

Several criminal justice courses are taught in the evening and/or online. All courses are offered online, at one time or another, providing for a convenient means of completing the entire degree from a distance, if students should so desire.
