Starting in spring 2024, KU’s School of Professional Studies will offer a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in criminal justice. These new degree programs were created in response to a growing demand for criminal justice professionals.
The program helps students transitioning to science programs at the KU Edwards Campus by facilitating connections with KU faculty and students, hosting career events, and providing learning opportunities.
Three molecular biosciences majors at the KU Edwards Campus have founded two student organizations to support other students in their pre-med experience, leading to their successful admissions to medical school at KU and Kansas City University.
The grant will be used to expedite degree completion and provide skilled employees for area companies that much sooner, while also improving the community's ability to identify and fight infectious diseases.
