Legal and Criminal justice degrees prepare individuals to apply theories and practices of the law. Legal degrees lead to careers as attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants, court reporters, and mediators. Criminal justice degrees lead to careers in law enforcement, corrections, homeland security, counterterrorism, and private protective services.

Legal and Criminal justice degrees vary in length and are available online as well as on campus. Typically, associate degrees take eighteen months to two years to complete, bachelor's degrees three to four years, and master's degrees one to two years (following completion of a bachelor's degree).
