The School for Criminology and Criminal Justice is in the process of developing and improving its online course offerings.

 How could you benefit from an online course?

  1. Free up your daily schedule—online courses allow you to make your own schedule and have more control over your time for traditional classes, work, athletics and other obligations.
  2. Offer more choice—online courses provide you with additional choices regarding instructors, courses to fit your schedule, and the mode in which they are transmitted.
  3. Prepare you for the future—online courses will either teach or reinforce a (new) way to receive knowledge using up-to-date technologies.
