LSU Shreveport provides the most affordable accredited Criminal Justice degree program in America, according to the website “Top Criminal Justice Degrees.” LSUS ranks above well-known schools from Arizona State University to Southern University A&M.
“Our job is to prepare students in a field that requires them to understand, investigate, and prevent crimes, as well as, how to treat victims and criminals accordingly,” said Dr. Chris Hale, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice and Program Director. “This is great news and I am truly excited for our students, faculty, department, and program.”
LSUS offers concentrations in forensics science and political science. The staff also teaches courses ranging from cybercrime, terrorism and homeland security. The C.J. staff plans to create a Homeland Security concentration in the near future. In addition, past students have been given the opportunity to present research at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, an International criminal justice organization.
With the growing need of protection from cybercrimes and attacks from inside and outside the United States, the need for quality candidates for law enforcement and government positions will be on the rise. This will attract students wanting to obtain a Criminal Justice degree at an affordable and accredited school.
“Our Criminal Justice Department has done a superb job in teaching our future leaders in law enforcement,” LSUS Chancellor Larry Clark said. “Students gaining a degree in Criminal Justice will expand their options for careers in the local, state and federal level.” These include law enforcement agencies, private investigation, homeland security and computer forensics.
