Public Safety - Fire and EMT Higher Education Options

Graduates can continue on to either a two-year associate degree or a four-year bachelor's degree in criminal justice, with a focus on either police science/police administration or corrections, offered at Youngstown State University and Kent State University. Because of age and education requirements in most public security areas, a three- or four-year delay is likely before you can legally become a public peace officer. Your MCCTC Criminal Justice education can also help you specialize in security, intelligence or police work in the armed forces.
