Saint Leo University
Saint Leo, FL

Want to be a CIA agent, crime scene investigator, or police officer? You’ll develop the skills to protect and serve with a criminal justice degree. Saint Leo delivers the program on-campus and online and allows students to focus their study. For instance, if you want to learn to analyze crime scene evidence then you can specialize in criminalistics. Or, if you see yourself thwarting terrorist activity, then add a specialty in homeland security. Here’s a unique opportunity: Each year, Professor Robert Sullivan teaches Saint Leo students about homeland security by accompanying them on an intensive eight-day Israel trip. Students have toured everywhere from Haifa to Jerusalem while learning about counterterrorist tactics from expert organizations like the Israeli Special Forces. But you won’t have to travel the world to learn from criminal justice experts. The professors at Saint Leo have worked as law enforcement officers, detectives, investigators, and prosecutors. Whether you study on-campus or online, you’ll learn from professionals who truly know what it’s like to work in the field and can prepare you for it.

Florida State University
Tallahassee, FL

Yes, you can go to Florida State University to become a police officer. FSU’s association with the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy enables students to earn their college degree and state officer certifications at the same time. But turning out well-educated professionals is only part of the institution’s mission. FSU also prioritizes innovation and discovery in the discipline, such as using Florida’s unique banking disclosure laws to empirically study the conditions and circumstances that have led to repetitive financial fraud at major U.S. financial institutions. The university’s criminology faculty is ranked number one in the nation for research productivity and is among the top 10 for grant acquisition. For students, this means being taught by cutting-edge scholars in areas such as gun control, biosocial criminology, and corrections. FSU highly encourages criminology undergraduates to seek internships and helps facilitate the process through fairs and databases. You might find yourself performing digital forensics for the Tallahassee U.S. Probation Office or writing podcasts for the Florida Supreme Court. On campus, the Center for Criminology and Public Policy Research offers unique opportunities for graduate students to get involved. For example, they can assist the State of Florida’s Attorney General’s Office in studying elder financial exploitation or search records for connections between prison visitations and convict recidivism. For working professionals, FSU’s well-regarded online criminology program enables pursuit of an undergraduate or graduate degree without having to travel to campus.
