Criminal Justice encompasses the study of criminals, crime as a social phenomenon, and the criminal justice system as an interrelated whole. The program has been developed in cooperation with local and regional law enforcement and correctional agencies. The goals of the program are: (1) to enhance the skills of current and prospective law enforcement, correctional personnel, and other public service practitioners (2) to promote a professional perspective toward the justice professions.
Students completing EACC's criminal justice programs are prepared to pursue careers in law enforcement and correctional facilities at the local, state, or federal level. After completing our program, students can anticipate an exciting career with the following job duties:
Maintaining order to promote public safety and security.
Enforcing laws, ordinances, rules or regulations to protect people and property.
