Welcome from the Director
As the Chair of Criminal Justice and program director for the 2+2 program, it is my pleasure to welcome you to The Citadel! The 2+2 program has been part of our curriculum since 2011 and was created in response to the dramatic increase in the number of students graduating from two-year programs and the number of students wanting to have a degree in criminal justice. This is important because many agencies within the criminal justice system are requiring a four-year degree from job candidates.
There are several advantages to our program including the flexibility to attend courses in the evening and the option to take core courses at a technical college. In addition, our program has some of the country’s leading experts teaching classes. By taking classes taught by local solicitors, judges, police chiefs, and crime scene investigators, students are able to merge theory and practice, resulting in a more comprehensive understanding of the criminal justice field.
