Criminal Justice

Help people turn their lives around

Why study criminal justice at LMC?

Real-life law and order. Actual criminal justice work is far different than your favorite TV show – but it is rewarding, exciting and important. No two days are the same – but every day involves serving and protecting the community you call home.

The law in your hands. If you’re looking for a career right out of school, criminal justice gets you ready for an entry-level job in corrections. You could work at a county, state or federal jail, prison or juvenile detention center.

Long arm of the law. If you’re looking to become a police officer, detective or lawyer, the criminal justice program gives you a great foundation. From here, our advisors can help you transfer to a four-year college or a police academy.
