Criminal Justice Information Night
Discover Alvernia University's Distinctive Criminal Justice Program!
Personal attention from criminal justice faculty and staff starts before you ever enter an Alvernia classroom. It begins at our Criminal Justice Information Night, where you'll able to learn about our distinctive program with professors and Alvernia staff.
You can learn more about the Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice Administration and how Alvernia makes it possible for working adults to complete a bachelor degree. The program offers everything you'll need to be successful in law enforcement, corrections, courts, probation, parole, private security, and other related careers. The curriculum is designed to provide adult learners with expert instruction on the most current trends, policies and practices in the field.
And if you get employer tuition reimbursement, you'll learn how Alvernia offers a Tuition Deferment Program that simplifies your finances. You start your education with no upfront costs, and don't need to pay until the end of the semester.
Stop by our upcoming Criminal Justice Information Night, and we'll even waive the application fee to help get you started. We'll be here to help you get ahead by going back!
