Law Enforcement

Choosing the law enforcement concentration means you are interested in becoming an officer for a local, state or federal agency.

As a law enforcement student, you will learn:

  • The theory and practice of policing;
  • The laws of arrest, search and seizure;
  • Constitutional rights and responsibilities;
  • The history of law enforcement;
  • And much more.

Professors will make sure you are exposed to the latest developments in America’s police organizations. They will also help you prepare for entry-level career opportunities or promotional opportunities for those already employed as a law enforcement officer.

Graduates of the criminal justice program who concentrated in law enforcement are currently employed as law enforcement officers in major U.S. cities and as state and federal agents.
