  • The structure of the American criminal justice system
  • The U.S. Constitution (Bill of Rights) provisions and how they apply to criminal laws and procedures

Though internships are not required, you may find opportunities with the FBI, local and municipal police departments, forensic labs, courthouses, and nonprofits that serve as diversionary programs through court support services.

We keep our class sizes small to encourage active participation in discussions and to provide more one-on-one support from our professional faculty. They bring years of practical criminal justice expertise into the classroom and will help you gain real-world experience through off-site learning opportunities.

This is just one of the ways Post University makes your education personal. We also offer academic advising from a personal staff member from the moment you enroll.
