Program Description:

The mission of the Criminal Justice program is to provide specialized classroom instruction and practical experience to prepare students for employment or promotional opportunities in criminal justice agency positions in crime prevention, public safety, corrections, or other related fields.

This program is designed to educate students who wish to pursue a career in criminal justice or for additional training of individuals already employed in the field.

The program emphasizes safe and efficient work practices, basic occupational skills, and the application of federal, state, and local laws as they apply to both emergency and routine situations. Course content is organized into competency-based courses of instruction that specify occupational competencies that the student must successfully complete.
