About this course
This program is designed for full-time students desiring employment after two years of study. Careful planning and selection of courses is necessary to complete the program in two years. Many students take advantage of summer terms to fill general education requirements. Consult a Criminal Justice & Emergency Services advisor or Department Chair for specific details on selection of proper electives.
The program also is designed to meet the needs of students wishing to transfer to a four-year degree program upon graduation from SUNY Broome Community College.
Students entering Criminal Justice must understand that most law enforcement agencies have physical, psychological, and medical fitness standards, and require a background free of felony and serious misdemeanor convictions. In some cases, juvenile delinquency adjudications may exclude a person from employment in any level of law enforcement.
