School of Criminal Justice

It's the study of crime and criminal behavior. It's also the study of police departments, prison systems, criminal law, and the courts. Anderson University, through our School of Criminal Justice, is committed to educating today's law enforcement officers, private investigators, federal agents and leaders, as well as prospective law students with an interest in criminal law. Recognizing the importance of coordinated emergency responses in a post-911 and post-Hurricane Katrina country, we also offer programs in emergency management.

Our programs include a Bachelor of Criminal Justice with concentrations in Homeland Security/Emergency Preparedness and Law Enforcement and a Bachelor of Emergency Management Services with concentrations in Homeland Security Operations and Administration, and Whole Community Emergency Management. The School of Criminal Justice, through its Command College of South Carolina, also offers a Master of Criminal Justice, which prepares law enforcement administrators
