From the first courses in the CJ-BA program, students immerse themselves in the foundations of criminal justice and modern research into policing in the 21st century. Students gain job-specific knowledge along with a depth of understanding of Constitutional, cultural, and ethical considerations associated with law enforcement positions.
Advanced coursework goes beyond the basic knowledge required to enter law enforcement. The program aims to foster new leaders in policing and criminal justice that align with modern challenges and opportunities. Upon graduation, students will find themselves equipped to make a real difference in the communities they’ll serve.
For professionals who have already earned a regionally accredited degree and are looking to transition into the Law Enforcement field of service, we offer a fast-track Criminal Justice MN POST Licensure Eligibility Certificate. The certificate consists of six-courses to complete the POST academic requirements, which prepares you for the tactical SKILLS component and MN POST Licensure exam.
