Knowledgeable and experienced faculty are behind the strong reputation of the criminal justice and criminology program at Ball State. You will have the opportunity of interacting one-on-one with our professors.

Same as on Our Main Campus

Classes are taught by the same faculty who teach criminal justice and criminology on campus. They are Ph.D.s, active in research, and early adopters of online teaching. We adhere to the nationally recognized standard of best practices for online learning via the Quality Matters Program. Through this, Ball State faculty have access to ongoing professional development to ensure that courses lead to successful student outcomes.

Professionally Active

Ball State faculty are also professionally active within the criminal justice and criminology field, serving on national and international boards and committees, and participating in national and international organizations which directly influence criminal justice policy.

Diverse Experiences in the Field to Benefit You

Our criminal justice and criminology professors have criminal justice field experience in a variety of public and private sector positions.

To the classroom, they bring their diverse experiences from the field, where they have researched and pursued passions in juvenile justice, corrections, crisis intervention, hate crimes, research methods, adult drug courts, policing, victimology, mental illness, and other areas.
