I’ve been able to get beneficial experience as CEOelect of the Lander Professional Business Society, and I have held offices with Chi Alpha Omega Fraternity. I’m also on the worship leadership team of the Lander Baptist Collegiate Ministry, and I serve as a Presidential Ambassador. Lander is a smaller school, which means smaller class sizes. This allows students to build a more personal relationship with their professors, and the faculty and staff are equally invested in the students’ academic success and helping them achieve personal goals.” “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” ~ Booker T. Washington 10 What is this degree program like? Whether learning the basics of international political systems, studying the roles of race and gender in American communities or examining the social origins of the law, our political science and sociology majors are getting the experience they need for careers in criminal justice, the military, law, teaching, journalism, government service and business management. Depending on your major, you’ll have opportunities to intern with local law enforcement and government agencies, and there are even chances to study in Washington, D.C., or enroll in the study abroad program. What is the online criminal justice management program? Lander University’s Criminal Justice Management Degree Program is an online bachelor’s degree completion program offered to those who have an associate degree, preferably in criminal justice, and who have two years of law enforcement experience and/or who are employed as an officer at the time of entering the program. Creating Future Leaders Lander students have opportunities to meet some of the key members of the state and federal governments.
