MVC Adds Online Bachelor's Degree in Criminal JusticePosted March 25, 2014
Missouri Valley College has added a new completely online degree program. Beginning fall 2014, MVC will offer an online Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice.
Criminal justice students gain a solid understanding of the causes of criminal behavior and the application of justice. Criminal justice degrees prepare students for careers in local, state and federal law enforcement and private security as well as legal careers in the justice system.
“MVC’s online degree programs provide students with the same dynamic quality education offered via the College’s on-campus courses, but in a more convenient setting,” said Dr. Mannie Hall, associate academic dean. “Offering online degrees allows the College to serve students who are unable to come for a traditional on-campus experience. This allows our students to complete their degrees with the flexibility of working around their other commitments such as home and family.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of police, detectives and other security related professions is projected to grow five percent from 2012 to 2022. Continued interest for public safety will lead to new openings for officers; however, jobs may become more competitive, making a degree even more valuable.
Other completely online degree programs offered at MVC include bachelor’s degrees in psychology and business administration. The College also offers a variety of general education courses online. MVC is now enrolling for summer and fall online classes. For more information go to www.moval.edu/mvconline.
