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 the Criminal Justice Department Chair for specific details on selection of proper electives. Criminal Justice courses are described on page 122. Graduation from this program of study may now be completed at Broome Community College by completing all course requirements during the day.
The program also is designed to meet the needs of students wishing to transfer to a four-year degree program upon graduation from 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.
This course of study is not intended for prospective law school students.
SEQUENCE OF COURSES: This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study. Students placed into ENG 090 are required to take CRJ 102 before taking any other Criminal Justice course.
