Criminal Justice

Overview

The Criminal Justice program at ASU-Newport provides coursework and credentials to students desiring to advance careers in Law Enforcement, Correctional Systems and Private Security. The program is offered online and in the classroom allowing us to meet the needs of today's diverse student population. Students who complete a Criminal Justice degree have the ability to be employed in law enforcement. The ASUN Criminal Justice degree is fully transferable into the ASU Jonesboro Criminology program. Additionally, many of the upper-level courses (making up the four-year bachelor's degree) are being delivered to the ASUN campus via Compressed Video Network and online classes. This means that (1) students do not lose any hours when transferring to ASU Jonesboro and (2) many of the courses required of ASU Jonesboro can be taken on the ASUN campus in Newport. 

For current law enforcement officers, ASUN has partnered with the Criminal Justice Institute to offer a Crime Scene Investigation Certificate and a Law Enforcement Administration Certificate. To learn more about either of these certificates, please visit the Criminal Justice Institute - a campus of the University of Arkansas System.
