A Georgia Baptist Institution
A degree in Criminal Justice will open many opportunities for jobs on the Federal, State, County and City levels. The degree will give the student a well-rounded comprehensive study of Police, Court, and Corrections as well as supporting agencies.
Shorter's Criminal Justice faculty consists of scholar-practitioners who teach from both an academic perspective and personal experience. The Criminal Justice degree is available in both traditional and online formats to better serve the needs of our students.
Peace officers who are certified by a state or Department of Corrections will receive 14 to 16 hours of credit. Coursework is then closely related to the officers' professional experience - allowing them to take the lessons learned back to their agency and improve their service.
Major Courses (36 hours)
Minor Required (18 hours)
The Criminal Justice Program at Shorter University strongly believes in Micah 6:8 - "And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
"Our calling is humbly to love and serve our neighbors - clients, pastors, spouses, the oppressed, the orphans, and the actual neighbors on our block - through the limits and the freedom of the roles to which God has called us. We will seek to recognize our responsibilities to particular roles and in particular circumstances as those working in the criminal justice system within the body of Christ." (Michael Schutt, 2007)
