The Penn State Beaver, New Kensington, and Shenango campuses have been granted joint authorization to deliver the bachelor of science in Administration of Justice program which will begin in fall 2010. All courses needed for the degree will be offered at each campus, although students in the program should expect to take some courses through a combination of Web-based and face-to-face technology in addition to the traditional classroom setting.
            With the addition of the new program, Beaver campus now offers six baccalaureate degrees and four associate degrees. The campus also hosts Shenango’s R.N. to B.S. nursing degree completion program and offers a master's degree in education in teaching and curriculum in conjunction with Penn State Harrisburg, The Capital College.

Through a combination of formal classroom instruction, practical training in laboratory courses, individual study and field experience, students in the program will be well prepared to pursue an array of career opportunities in federal, state and local law enforcement and correction agencies, court-related services, probation and parole services, and private-sector security.
