Build your foundation for a career in the field of criminal justice with M State’s AS degree. The program has been designated as a Professional Peace Officer Education Program by the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training.
At M State, students who are seeking a career in law enforcement have the opportunity to complete all the educational and practical requirements necessary to apply for peace officer licensing. Our faculty have extensive experience in criminal justice, and students develop valuable on-the-job skills through our internship program.
M State's Criminal Justice program has an articulation agreement with Minnesota State University Moorhead. Graduates from M State's program can transfer into MSUM's bachelor degree program in Criminal Justice.
Articulation agreements ensure that students completing specified coursework or degree programs at M State will transfer into designated programs at partner universities or colleges according to the terms of the agreement. This cooperative effort eliminates or minimizes the questions and confusion that sometimes accompany transfer and allows our students to be confident that their degree from M State will satisfy a substantive portion of the completion requirements for the bachelor's degree at the university or college they will be attending.
