The Criminal Investigation Professional

The Criminal Investigation Professional program provides students the basic competencies involved in investigating crimes, the individuals who commit them, and the victims who endure them. From the legal elements necessary for conviction to the investigation techniques and details required for effective prosecution, criminal investigators understand not only the nuts and bolts of a crime scene, but the legal and ethical implications of their work. Criminal investigators require a firm understanding of the law alongside the research and investigative capability to create and track down various criminal profiles including the psychology of a criminal mind and the difficulties endured by their victims.

The Criminal Investigation Professional Program

Criminal Investigation is more and more being driven by advances in technology, provided the search and seizure techniques and investigative efforts remain within the confines of the Fourth Amendment. Still, as more and more technology is incorporated into criminal investigation efforts, technicians and investigation professionals who understand the nature of these efforts alongside the legal considerations and ramifications are in great demand by law offices, corrections agencies, companies that supply these organizations and beyond.

The Criminal Investigation Professional program offers students the chance to hone their knowledge and skills in the area of criminology, the criminal mind and investigation techniques all with an eye toward criminal justice ethics and the legal system that governs these investigations. Students looking to pursue advanced degrees in criminal justice, perhaps looking toward a career as a criminal law assistant or court clerk would benefit tremendously from this set of strategically aligned courses and acquire the knowledge and skills that all criminal investigation professionals draw from every day.

I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

-Kasey, Fort Riley

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

-Aeisha, Hunter Army Air Field

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.

-Anne, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii

The enrollment process was quick and easy. Lots of help when needed.
