Criminal justice schools in Virginia prepare students through educational courses for a career in criminal justice. The primary goal of most criminal justice programs at Virginia-area colleges and universities is to provide students with the basic understanding of the judicial and legal systems. Courses in criminology, sociology, psychology, and law enforcement are offered in the program. Most students who graduate from a criminal justice program secure employment in law enforcement or correctional institutions. Police agencies and correctional facilities often hire recent criminal justice graduates. Degrees are awarded at the associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree level. Externships provided in the senior year often lead to future employment opportunities.
