Northeastern State University is offering a degree completion program for criminal justice-legal studies at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in Miami, Okla., NSU-Connors State College in Muskogee and Kiamichi Technology Center in Poteau.
The degree completion program is a model developed by NSU. In partnership with other institutions, NSU provides opportunities for students and working adults to earn a bachelor's degree in criminal justice-legal studies without leaving the NEO, CSC or KTC campues.
The format is an accelerated eight-week program with six more credit hours being offered each summer term. The classes are a mixture of blended and online courses. A student with an associate's degree can earn 12 hours per semester and six more each summer and complete the program in two years.
Classes offered at the three cooperating campuses during the Aug. 16 – Oct. 8 session are criminal law II, and legal research and writing. Classes for Oct. 11 – Dec. 10 are introduction to law and American courts, and civil procedure and pleadings.
Careers where a criminal justice-legal studies degree can be applied include ATF, bailiff, CIA, compliance officer, corrections officer, court clerk, court reporter, customs agent, DEA, FBI, ICE, paralegal, police detective, private investigator, private security, probation officer, Secret Service, sheriff and U.S. marshal.
