Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice Program Overview

Esperanza College's Criminal Justice Program provides students with a unique curriculum that endows them with the ability to connect theory and practice of criminal justice, with a special emphasis on the Christian ethical perspective. This course of study will accentuate critical thinking and the ability to effectively communicate in written and oral form.

The program is geared to creating a student-centered learning environment that is active, reflective, and experiential. It also provides students with general education and interdisciplinary course work that facilitates an easy transition to undergraduate programs in criminal justice, law, and sociology.

The program places high priority on excellence in teaching and learning through continuous enhancement and improvement in curriculum. Criminal Justice faculty are practitioners in their respective fields who bring with them their practical knowledge in the field.

The program prepares students for careers in police departments at the local and state levels and also in the courts, corrections, probation/parole, juvenile justice, Department of Homeland Security, and many other public law enforcement agencies. 

Our courses will prepare you with skills to excel in your career. This program requires consistent hard work and commitment on your part.
