This degree concentration is designed for experienced law enforcement professionals
who wish to further their careers by completing a program of study designed to increase
their skills in management, organizational relations, and communication; their knowledge
of the contexts within which law enforcement administration fits; their understanding
of workplace issues that can affect productivity; and their ability to manage diversity
in the workforce. In most cases, candidates for this degree program will be active
duty or retired law enforcement officers at the municipal, county, or state levels,
though military police and-in certain circumstances-those whose experience is in private
security are eligible as well.
To be admitted into the Law Enforcement Administration concentration, students must
show the following: Evidence of at least five years of experience in law enforcement
or other police work, as indicated above; completion of a law enforcement training
program sufficiently academic to earn at least 10 semester hours of credit; evidence
of having completed a minimum of 30 graded semester hours of credit from an accredited
college or university.
Individuals with private security backgrounds may be eligible to use these guidelines,
if they have earned a minimum of 30 semester hours of college credit and can demonstrate
experience and training equivalent to (1) and (2), above.
