Criminal Justice Online Program

Students pursuing a major in criminal justice have the opportunity to take courses online, in the classroom, or a blend of each.

If you do not live in the Birmingham area or have a work schedule that does not permit you to take on-campus classes, you can complete your degree completely online. Online courses appear on your transcript the same as campus-based courses and have the same level of excellence as our on-campus courses.

Often, students want to take courses in the classroom but may need the flexibility of an online class. No problem! You can blend online and on-campus classes within a semester or choose one format or the other for a given semester. In our program, you'll have the flexibility you need to complete your degree. 

All online course content is accessed through UAB’s learning management system, Canvas, which includes a variety of tools to make the course experience more engaging. Some of the tools used within online courses include virtual classroom lectures, multimedia, chat, and discussion boards. You can learn more about online programs and courses on the UAB Online website.
