It offers a series of specialized program options which represent a wide variety of adult career and academic interest course areas.

Each of the program options is designed as a distinct “mini-curriculum” within a broader range of adult educational possibilities.

Admission Requirements: Applicants should meet the general requirements for admission to the college. Placement tests may be required in some areas.

This career studies certificate provides an overview of foundational topics related to criminal justice. This curriculum includes foundational knowledge in criminal justice, criminology, ethics, and criminal law.  Upon completion of the career studies certificate, students are employable in careers such as correctional officers, jailers, security guards, gaming surveillance officers, and bailiffs.
