The Law and Justice program is offered in associate degree and post-degree certificates, in full-time, part-time, accelerated, day and evening formats.
The program prepares students for entry-level jobs such as airport security, CIA/FBI agent, Border Patrol agent, corrections officer, police officer, detective and customs agent. It also prepares students for entry-level jobs in law-related occupations such as legal administrative assistant, assistant document production administrator, and paralegal administrative assistant.
Employment of police officers, detectives and special agents is expected to increase faster than the average for all occupations over the next decade due to the increase in the nation’s population and police protection needs.
