  • Course description
    Crime fighting isn’t as glamorous as it seems on TV or in the movies. It requires hard work by well-trained individuals—from the police officers on the street to the highest ranks of law enforcement and everyone in between. That’s where Indiana Tech’s Center for Criminal Sciences comes in.

    A growing number of law enforcement agencies require some college education for new officers, and Indiana Tech’s associate degree will fulfill that entry-level requirement. The associate degree program includes eight core courses which examine the criminal justice system as a whole. Subsequent courses take a closer look at individual components of the criminal justice system, such as the police force, the courts, and the corrections system.

    Career Opportunities
    The program gives students a general understanding of the criminal justice system that will enable them to excel in a variety of agencies, such as police forces at the local and state level. If you’re looking for a springboard for further learning in other university
    majors or a police academy, the associates degree is a great choice.
