B.S. Criminal Justice - National/Corporate Security

After September 11, 2001, security professionals became important to a variety of organizations and businesses.  They are employed by organizations or government to protect the property, personnel, information, and economic assets from man-made and natural disasters and ensure business continuity. It is important for security professionals to learn about technical and supervisory responsibilities. They protect the workplace from theft, workplace violence, crime, and terrorism. Security management professionals may perform security risk assessments, conduct investigations, design crime prevention programs and security systems, create, implement and manage loss prevention programs, protect high-risk personnel, devise and implement disaster recovery plans and business continuity plans. Students in the national/corporate security concentration will study security management concepts through a series of seven classes in addition to the core criminal justice curriculum.

The programmatic outcomes for the B.S. Criminal Justice--National/Corporate Security are:

  • Students will understand core theories and practices in criminal justice - Administration of Justice; Law Enforcement; Law Adjudication; Corrections; Criminological Theory
  • Students will demonstrate critical thinking and professional communication skills.
  • Students will apply legal and ethical principles to decision making.
  • Students will apply quantitative and qualitative methods and tools to formulate decision alternatives.
  • Students will apply critical thinking to diversity issues that arise in Criminal Justice
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to work with diverse colleagues in team situations.
  • Students will understand and discuss paradigm shifts in the terror age, to include asymmetric threats, non-nation states, non-contiguous battlefields, and bureaucracies vs. ideologies and will understand the use of technology and its application by terrorists and insurgents.
  • Students will explore and analyze a variety of threats against U.S. National Security and synthesize possible solutions into actionable risk mitigation and counterproliferation/counterforce strategies.
