Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Criminal Justice

On-Campus Degree Overview

Online Degree Available

The Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice program in Regent University's College of Arts & Sciences sets forth as its purpose the provision of an academically excellent Christian education that equips students to be effective professionals and servant-leaders in the criminal justice arena (and its related areas of interaction) or to pursue further education at the post-baccalaureate level.

The criminal justice program at our Virginia Beach, Va., campus is founded upon the principle that criminal justice is a moral responsibility of governments, one that demands not only moral excellence on the part of its agents but also its diligent study and careful application. Based on this principle, our Christian faculty has structured a program that emphasizes interdisciplinary and biblical integration, strong academic content, critical thinking and analysis and ethics as the guiding principles in the study and practice of criminal justice. Regent students in the criminal justice program are thus educated to be high-level critical thinkers, excellent professionals and, ultimately, well-rounded human beings.

Students earning this degree on campus or through our online learning program can seamlessly transition to the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice degree program and/or be qualified for professional and career advancement in the criminal justice field or other related areas.
