UC East




On the University of Cincinnati’s Uptown Campus, the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) brings together over 4,000 students from 50 states and 29 countries to become teachers, athletic trainers, law enforcement officers or addictions counselors, just to name a few of the opportunities.  Our diverse student population comes from cities, suburbs and small towns to enjoy the challenging academic programs and the active student life available on the Uptown Campus.

Students who prefer to complete their bachelor degree at a regional campus can do so at our UC East location.  UC East is a collaboration between several UC colleges, including CECH, which began offering classes September 2011. The new UC facility is an adaptive reuse of the former Ford plant in Batavia Township, Clermont County. CECH now occupies part of the second floor of the building and offers bachelor degree completion programs in criminal justice, paralegal studies, and early childhood education.

Advantages of the CECH Bachelor Degree Completion Programs at UC East include:

  • Small classes close to home
  • A convenient schedule of classes
  • Coordination of transfer into the Bachelor’s degree program
  • A Program coordinator onsite to assist with advising
  • Completion of a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in as little as two years for qualified transfer students.

School of Criminal Justice  – Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice

The field of criminal justice is more than the training of law enforcement officers.  The program covers the entire criminal justice system and students can concentrate on policing, criminology, criminal justice, or correction areas.  Our program is designed to prepare students academically for a professional career in the criminal justice system.  Careers in this area include police work, probation and parole officers, security, crime prevention, juvenile justice, halfway house counselors, and other community-based correctional opportunities.  Additionally, many of our graduates elect to enter law school or graduate school.

School of Criminal Justice — Bachelor of Science Degree in Paralegal Studies

The paralegal studies program is designed to prepare graduates for a variety of paralegal job opportunities. The utilization of paralegals improves the efficiency, economy and availability of legal services. A paralegal performs substantive legal work under the direct supervision of an attorney. Paralegals must have knowledge and understanding of various legal concepts.

Prospective students should be aware that paralegal education is not the equivalent of a law school education.  Graduates of paralegal programs are not qualified or eligible to take the bar examination. Academic credit for paralegal courses is not transferable for advanced standing in law school.

Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as provided by law.
