Students gain relevant and applicable education in criminology, procedural law, addictive processes, research, corrections and the sociological forces at work in crime including juvenile delinquency and gender issues. As Juniors and Seniors, students enjoy internship opportunities in any area in which they may be interested.
Remember, you donʼt have to be in Fairbanks to get a degree in Justice from UAF.

HIGH SCHOOL INITIATIVE
The Justice Department offers introductory justice courses to highly motivated, interested and capable high school seniors. Students from Alaska's rural communities, as well as those from urban schools, have taken our online classes successfully. Seniors can pay reduced tuition of $75 per course through our Tech Prep Program. This option is especially valuable for home schoolers. Click here for more information.
SMALL CAMPUS INITIATIVE
The trend in higher education is for campuses and departments to share online courses which will be transferable between institutions in order to expand the offerings available to students. The UAF Justice Department is seeking campuses across the Pacific Northwest with whom to partner to provide expanded online Justice offerings-- an especially attractive option for smaller campuses.
