Louisville, Kentucky (PressExposure) May 21, 2009 -- The field of criminal justice is growing exponentially. To keep up with the times and the demands of future workers, East Texas Baptist University has decided to offer a Criminal Justice online degree program to service those unable to attend traditional classes. The new online degree program is an important step toward making East Texas Baptist a more competitive online contender.
Located in Marshall, Texas, East Texas Baptist has been a quality liberal arts institution dedicated to excellence in education for almost 100 years. To expand upon that quality, in early 2009, East Texas Baptist enlisted in a partnership with The Learning House, Inc. to get the new online Criminal Justice program up and running successfully. Learning House provides East Texas Baptist with the tools necessary for an impressive online education program, including 24/7 on-demand faculty and staff support, customizable course content and fail-safe hosting services.
East Texas Baptist will offer the Criminal Justice online degree program as a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice as well as a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, both of which emphasize a Christian perspective for law enforcement, probation, parole and other criminal justice areas. Students will be briefed on various topics while enrolled in the program, including the history of correctional systems and practices, research methods in criminal justice, causes and characteristics of crime, and the legal aspects of criminal procedure.
The Learning House, along with East Texas Baptist, is confident that this new online program will prove successful due to the increasing number of adults looking for work in the field.
