Highlighting: Criminal Justice & Homeland Security

For the month of March, the Fortier Library is highlighting WMCC's Criminal Justice/Homeland Security program.

"The Associate in Science Degree in Criminal Justice/Homeland Security deals with the causes of crime and its control through the various components of the criminal justice system, with emphasis on management and administrative concerns. The events of September 11, 2001 and the ensuing Patriot Act of 2001 affected the awareness of law enforcement and the manner in which they carry out their duties. The program is broadly based and includes courses which cover law enforcement, the court, and corrections. These courses, coupled with our general education requirements, provide our graduates with the background necessary for success in the Criminal Justice field. The program is designed to allow both pre- and in-service students to complete the degree on either a full or part-time basis in preparation for professional careers, and to continue their studies, if desired, through subsequent matriculation at a four-year college.

Upon Completion of the program graduates will be qualified for law enforcement positions on local, state and federal levels including positions with the Department of Homeland Security."
