Online Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Certificates

Do you feel called to serve your nation or community? An online certificate in criminal justice or homeland security can help you answer the call. A certificate is one of the fastest ways to take that first step to gain the skills you need to serve and protect our nation against attack. And at Liberty, we offer certificates for every program level you need.

Through these certificates, you can prepare for higher education or gain in-demand skills with an undergraduate certificate. Learn the fundamental skills that can help launch your career and give you the edge you need in criminal justice.

If you already have your bachelor’s degree, then a quick way to enhance your résumé or earn credit toward a master’s degree is a graduate certificate. You can expand your opportunities to get into leadership positions, and best of all, you can do that in as little as 1 semester!

Our executive certificates are a great way to obtain advanced knowledge. Furthermore, they can fully transfer into a corresponding criminal justice doctoral degree program.

Guarding our nation and local communities is an honorable job and we need individuals with high moral values to step into that role and make a positive impact. Liberty University’s criminal justice and homeland security certificates are a great way to begin or enhance your journey as you protect our great nation.

Why We’re Nonprofit

As a nonprofit (not-for-profit) university, Liberty is in the business of training skilled professionals to make a difference in the world – not gaining profit, revenue, or producing dividends for shareholders. In keeping with our commitment to your education, we invest our resources back into degree programs and into your student experience.

While many other online colleges have raised tuition, Liberty has been able to keep costs low as a nonprofit university and has not increased tuition for 8 straight years. Lower tuition means less student loan debt for students.
