A Certificate of Graduation
The Law Enforcement curriculum includes a broad base of instruction relating to the criminal justice system and enhances the students’ potential for seeking employment with a law enforcement agency. This certificate is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement or related fields.
Many of our students are continuing their education after completing their associate degree in law enforcement. Some of them stay on our campus to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Homeland Security. Our courses transfer to other bachelor programs as well.
Graduates of our program have the option to enter the workforce as well. Law enforcement and corrections jobs are available at the city, county and state levels.
