Not Sure Which Justice Studies Program Is Right for You?

Rasmussen University’s Justice Studies programs offer a wide range of knowledge and skills that allow you to best serve your community and deliver justice to those in need.

If you have a passion for working in high-pressure situations, our Associate's level Criminal Justice degree provides the academic foundation that many law enforcement agencies are looking for in new hires. Pursuing an online Criminal Justice degree at the Bachelor's level is ideal for students who are interested in leadership roles within the justice system.

If you’ve always seen yourself working alongside an attorney in a courtroom or corporate office, our Paralegal Certificate or Associate’s Degree may be the best path for you to reach your goals.

Rasmussen University’s Law Enforcement programs will help you to reach your goals of becoming a police officer in the state of Minnesota. Whether you’ve already accomplished the academic or physical skills component, or have no previous experience, you can work and study knowing you are helping to enhance your natural skills and pursue the role you were meant to fill.
