EKU offers one of the nation’s top online degree programs in criminal justice according to The Community for Accredited Online Schools. The organization released a “Best Online Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice” list and placed Eastern Kentucky University at #2 of 50 schools.
For careers in corrections and criminal justice, online degree programs at EKU are particularly rewarding. Eastern Kentucky University has prepared students in these fields for more than 50 years, and the EKU College of Justice and Safety is considered a national leader.
Representatives from Eastern Kentucky University, the Kentucky Department of Housing and Louisville Metro Police Department were among those who met with Louisville Central High School students in December to discuss the rewards and challenges of justice and safety careers.
State Crime, Women and Gender, a recently published book by assistant professor Dr. Victoria Collins in the EKU School of Justice Studies is a welcome contribution to the discussion of gender and the criminal justice system.
