Reinhardt Launches Online Degree Completion Program in Criminal Justice
Flexibility, convenience and quality degree programming underscore the basic needs of the adult learner. As a result, Reinhardt University introduces a bachelor’s degree completion program in Criminal Justice with classes to begin on August 6, 2012. This online program is designed to meet the needs of the non-traditional student.
The bachelor’s degree has become the standard for many entry-level positions and a necessity for those who plan to advance in their careers in public safety or those students motivated by potential salary increase and promotion opportunities. “With no requirement that you log in at any specific day or time, our online program is designed to fit the working adult’s scheduling needs. The program prepares students with critical thinking skills, enhanced decision making capabilities, and a broad Criminal Justice knowledge base,” said Program Coordinator and retired Sheriff's Captain Ron Applin.
The 51- credit program also offers an attractive option for students from area technical schools who want to complete their bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. The University has articulation agreements with several area technical schools that allow students the advantage of transferring up to 72 credits into the program.
“Students have clear advantages in the program,” said Applin. “They can complete the course work in 18 months and they learn from instructors who not only have the academic credentials but years of practical experience, so they gain insight and understanding from the real field experts.”
Students enrolled in the program also receive an iPad and electronic textbooks to assure the seamless delivery of course content and other materials. For information about the program, contact 770-720-5999 or CJ@reinhardt.edu or visit http://www.reinhardtcj.com/.
