On Wednesday, May 28th Monroe College will be holding an open house to introduce its exciting new Criminal Justice Program. This is an excellent opportunity for prospective students, members of the general public, and media to meet the program's chair, Dr. William Mc Donald, as well as get more information about the program and begin the enrollment process. The open house will be held on Wednesday, May 28 from 11am-7pm in Monroe College's King Hall, located at 2501 Jerome Avenue, just north of Fordham Road.
"Because the Monroe College Criminal Justice Program has been designed to provide individual mentoring and support," said Dr. McDonald, "these open house sessions will begin the process of one-to-one dialogue and discussion about educational development and career opportunities in the rewarding fields of criminal justice." The Monroe College Criminal Justice Program will lead to careers in law enforcement, corrections, social work, probation, treatment and counseling, juvenile and family advocacy, the court systems, and other related fields. All of the courses will be taught by criminal justice professionals who have many years of experience and unique insights. Earlier this month the New York State Board of Regents approved the new degree program, Monroe's first venture into the social sciences.
Monroe College will offer criminal justice courses during the day, evening, weekend, and online. For those who qualify, transfer and life-experience credits are accepted and financial aid is available. As with all Monroe College programs, criminal justice graduates will receive lifetime career placement assistance.
