Criminology & Criminal Justice Fully Online

Criminology & Criminal Justice (CCJ) provides students the opportunity to complete their PSU bachelor’s degree or post-baccalaureate certificate fully online. Students are not required to visit campus and are not required to “attend” online courses during specific hours.

CCJ: Flexible Campus vs. Fully Online

Whether students choose to earn their criminology & criminal justice bachelor's degree through the flexible campus program or the fully online program, the bachelor’s degree and post-baccalaureate certificate requirements are the same and the degree is the same -- “online” does not appear anywhere on the degree or on official PSU transcripts.

CCJ-Online courses are taught by the same nationally-known, award-winning CCJ faculty who teach on campus.

CCJ – Flexible Campus: CCJ courses are offered in a variety of formats:  in-person, partially online and fully online. This allows some scheduling flexibility, though some required courses can only be completed by attending in-person courses.

CCJ – Online: All CCJ courses are offered fully online. In-person attendance and campus visits are not required to complete the CCJ major. Specialized advising is provided to help students identify and enroll in fully online courses that will satisfy university bachelor’s degree requirements. Students can also complete non-degree certificates fully online.
