This program designates a specific option within the current Administration of Justice A.A.S. curriculum for students who intend to complete the Police Academy in conjunction with their degree. It provides a logical order for coursework to be completed for both students who want to complete coursework prior to the Academy and those for whom completion of the Academy is the first priority.
* Students considering completing their baccalaureate degree with University of Maryland University College (UMUC) in criminal justice should consider taking one of the statistics courses and the public speaking course to fulfill UMUC’s foundation course requirements.
* Students who may have a criminal record need to be aware this could preclude them from employment in this field. Please discuss concerns with the program coordinator. Additionally, students need to be aware that excessive prior drug use may prevent their employment in the state of Maryland as well. Please direct questions about this to the program coordinator.
