Criminology & Criminal Justice Online

In Criminology & Criminal Justice (CCJ), you can complete your PSU bachelor’s degree or post-baccalaureate certificate fully online. There are no required visits to campus and no requirements to “attend” online courses during specific hours.

Whether students choose to earn their bachelor's degree through the flexible campus program or the fully online program, the requirements and degree are 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 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 courses that will satisfy university bachelor’s degree requirements. Students can also complete non-degree certificates online.

How to Enroll

CCJ Flexible Campus: Apply for admission to PSU and then simply declare CCJ as your major (or minor) by filling out a form on the PSU website. There are no special registration or application requirements for CCJ Flexible Campus students.

CCJ Online: Enrolling in CCJ Online requires meeting specific admission requirements and completing a separate program application process. Once accepted into the program, students are provided access to the CCJ Online fully online courses.
