There are many positions including court reporter, bail officer, and court clerk that enable students to play an integral role in the justice system. Students will have a greater understanding of the law once they have completed their degree. Computer software programs, court reporting equipment, and more will be taught throughout the program.
In order to earn their degree, students will have to complete the following courses: court reporting, criminal law and ethics, police operations and procedures, accounting, and human resources. These courses in addition to others will help students be able to find employment after graduation.
