Miami University’s Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice (BSCJ) is designed to prepare students for careers in the U.S. criminal justice system, including police, courts and corrections. The new degree
will be offered exclusively at Miami University’s regional locations in Hamilton and
Faculty of the program believe strongly that CJ graduates need to:
- have a deep understanding of criminal justice systems;
- possess strong communication and analytical skills;
- be aware of globalization and sensitive to diversity;
- be adaptive, critical, and independent thinkers;
- appreciate what it means to be a good local and global citizen; and
- have applied what they learn in the classroom in the field.
Accordingly, the curriculum has as its foundation the traditional liberal arts and sciences and a required field experience. All students will complete the same core of criminal justice courses and each student will select one area, or cognate, for more in-depth examination. Currently these include law enforcement, criminal justice administration, the administration of law and justice, and corrections.

For students with a background in healthcare or technology, Miami University Regional’s innovative, new Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, with a major in Health Information Technology (HIT), can prepare you for future success in the evolving U.S. healthcare system.
The program is designed to provide two pathways: the healthcare pathway provides additional computer foundation courses, while the technology pathway includes coursework in human anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology.
Students will complete a core-curriculum including courses in information management, retrieval and security, project management, health information technology, and global issues in information technology. They will also complete a capstone experience.
The degree is offered exclusively at Miami University's regional locations.

In fall 2008, Miami University's regional campuses introduced a new baccalaureate degree: the Bachelor of Integrative Studies (BIS). All classes take place on the Hamilton and Middletown campuses, and at the Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester.
BIS concentrations include the following:

Bachelor's degree programs in Engineering Technology may also be completed entirely at Miami University's regional locations.
The Engineering Technology baccalaureate degree (Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration or Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration) is a completion program for graduates of associate degree programs in electrical/electronics, mechanical, electro-mechanical or similar engineering technology programs. The objective of this program is to allow students who possess an associate degree in these areas to complete the bachelor degree in approximately the equivalent of two years of full-time work (64-70 semester hours).
Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology Concentration
The Electrical & Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) program focuses primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering and prepares graduates for work in that portion of the technological spectrum closest to product improvement, industrial processes, and operational functions.
The ECET concentration has direct impact on the growing
and developing energy and environmental
sectors, with dual-use technologies or civilian
and military use. It will give graduates the
necessary technical and managerial skills for
careers in design, application, installation,
manufacturing, operation and maintenance
of electrical/electronic/computer systems.
ECET graduates will work in a wide spectrum of
careers including automated manufacturing,
instrumentation and control, medical systems,
energy and environmental systems, wireless
communication and digital signal processing.
Graduates will be qualified for positions
in which they can use technology to develop
new products and solve problems.
Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration
Graduates are engineering technologists prepared to fill industrial positions in areas directly related to scientific programming, product design, process control, testing, manufacturing, sales, and service. Typical engineering technologist's duties may include working in teams involved with product analysis/design, instrumentation and control, CAD/CAM product design, laboratory testing services, product sales and service, product application, and the design of systems that require a hardware/software interface.
Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration
Mechanical Engineering Technology focuses on applications engineering and the analysis of the mechanical components of mechanisms, machines, products, and systems. The program requires a thorough understanding of applied mathematics and the engineering sciences. Students will develop the essential skills needed to apply experimental and empirical techniques to the study of systems and the solution of problems. This knowledge is used to research concepts, and apply modeling methods, to simulate and test operating conditions and their impact on the designed systems, and to synthesize different elements to obtain an optimum design of a specific product.
Industry is in need of qualified mechanical engineering technologists who are able to apply such tools as computer-aided design (CAD), finite element modeling and analysis, and the concepts of advanced mechanical design to the creation of sophisticated machines and systems.
Note: The Miami University Engineering Technology Department is proud and pleased to announce the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC-ABET) has accredited its associate and baccalaureate degree programs.
Bachelor's degree programs in Nursing may also be completed entirely at regional locations. (Some nursing classes may be taught at the Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester, or online.)
The Nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). It provides a balance of liberal arts and professional nursing courses. Emphasis is on the nursing process for health promotion, prevention, restoration, and maintenance with clients, family, and client groups in community health settings. Students are involved in activities preparatory for leadership and management roles and graduate study. Clinical experiences are one day a week.
