What advice would you give other students?

“The biggest thing I would say is no matter what you do you should find a silver lining. Have fun with whatever you are doing. Everything is an experience or a chance to learn and grow. Make that a focal point in your life for bigger and better things.”

Career Opportunities

While satisfying students' educational needs, Morrisville State College's Criminal Justice program is also intended to respond to the identified needs of law enforcement agencies and security businesses for well-educated professionals to provide quality security and protective services. 

There is an explosion occurring in the security related job markets, including an ever-increasing need for qualified professional personnel to fill the vacancies created by a technology driven expansion. The professional fields are experiencing a gap that is becoming hard to fill due to the lack of people with the appropriate education and training to fulfill the high tech needs of the 21st century. This need is being felt in all levels of the professional fields, but is particularly applicable throughout the criminal justice field, especially in the protective services. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects continued solid employment opportunities for Criminal Justice professionals for the foreseeable future. The proposed curriculum provides those individuals seeking to pursue a career in this field with the knowledge, skills and experiences required for success. This program is designed to effectively prepare students to enter law enforcement and private and corporate security careers requiring educational and technological backgrounds.
