Criminal Justice Bachelor Degree

The best criminal justice degree program is one that provides expert instruction from experienced faculty coupled with hands-on learning opportunities to prepare a student to pursue a justice-based career path like a police officer, parole officer, private security officer, or working with at-risk youth.

Mount Mercy’s criminal justice major introduces students to evidence-based practices, and offers students a chance to learn outside of the classroom through partnerships in Cedar Rapids and eastern Iowa.

Our criminal justice major was one of the first four-year programs in the region, and we continue to provide the best criminal justice education for students from traditional undergraduates to working adults.

Mount Mercy’s new Master of Arts in Criminal Justice degree gives Mount Mercy graduates with a criminal justice bachelor degree a pipeline into an exciting and respected master degree program.
