LBCC's Criminal Justice program can help prepare you to meet the stringent requirements for employment for the highly competitive field of law enforcement. The program is designed to help you gain critical thinking and communication skills that will make you a competitive candidate for an exciting and rewarding career in law enforcement. In addition, you will have opportunities to form ties with local police agencies and gain experience with ethnic and cultural diversity through work at a local community service agency.


Many of LBCC's Criminal Justice courses are available online. Consult the online Schedule of Classes for more information.


Participating Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) agencies include area police and sheriff departments, jails and correctional facilities, juvenile institutions, district attorney offices, and LBCC's Safety and Security department. 




LBCC grants up to 45 credit hours for military education as recommended by the American Council on Education's (ACE) Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. Students may request evaluation of military credit by furnishing the Office of Admissions with an AARTS or SMART transcript.

Three credits of PE 231 will automatically be granted if a student provides a DD214 or an official ACE transcript. Separate transcripts from the US Coast Guard can also be provided and evaluated for credit.
