About the Bachelor of Science Degree Programs

The School of Public and Environmental Affairs recognizes the complex problems facing our society, such as community and police relations, urban crime, and correctional facilities problems. Through the bachelor of science degree program the school develops its students’ problem-solving abilities and organizational skills so that they may contribute possible solutions to these and other problems.

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs degree can continue their education in law, planning, policy analysis, or business administration. For those who choose immediate employment, the degree is flexible enough to provide the necessary background to begin a career in the public, nonprofit, or private sector.

The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice degree is excellent preparation for a career in corrections, law enforcement, or probation. Students could also continue their education by studying public affairs, law, social work, and other social sciences.
