Our Degree Programs

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 Public Service and Administration, through its Command College of South Carolina, also offers a Master of Criminal Justice, which prepares law enforcement administrators.

Our bachelor 's degree programs prepare graduates for careers in local, state, and federal law enforcement, corrections, private investigation, emergency response and management, security, government, and other related fields. A degree in criminal justice also is a great major for prospective law school students. Earning a Master of Criminal Justice through the Command College of South Carolina prepares criminal justice professionals and managers for executive-level positions in criminal justice agencies.
