Undergraduate Certificate in
Criminal Justice & Investigation?


The Undergraduate Certificate in Criminal Justice & Investigation is designed for students and working professionals alike.  The courses combine academic content with "real-world" application of skills in the field of criminal investigations, and are taught by qualified, experienced instructors. The program merges the latest scientific investigative techniques with mandated changes in criminal law. You will build the knowledge to appropriately apply "hands-on" procedures for evaluating and processing crime scenes.

For the missional Christian, a career in criminal justice is an opportunity to not only infuse honor and integrity into every action taken, but also to practice biblical justice. Biblical justice is first and foremost the concept of "making right" or of restoration. This understanding of social justice is rooted in God's love and compassion for the weak, the vulnerable, the marginalized, the disenherited, the disenfranchised, and of course, the victimized. Criminal investigators serve on the side of the victimized and seek to address the injustice of their situation. So criminal investigators collect information (or evidence) about a crime in order to: (1) determine if a crime has been committed; (2) identify the perpetrator; (3) apprehend the perpetrator; and (4) provide evidence to support a conviction in court.  By doing these tasks, Christian criminal investigators join in God's mission of bringing wholeness to the world.
