My experience with the Crown College law enforcement and Criminal Social Justice program is educational because you get the opportunity to learn from a wide range of instructors who are both retired police officers and current police officers as well as lawyers because of this we are able to learn about all aspects of the law.

I am pursuing a double major in Criminal Social Justice and Law Enforcement upon receiving my degree I hope to go into the Police force or enter the Department of Natural Resources as an officer.

Mentoring Opportunities

Learning in the classroom is one of the core ways that you can grow as a person. However, we believe classrooms can only go so far. That is why each student has the opportunity to connect with a faculty or staff member to talk about class, life, and Jesus. Because learning is more than just knowledge, it is experiencing life-changing relationships.
