LA ROCHE COLLEGE ANNOUNCES OPEN HOUSE FOR CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROFESSIONALS
Pittsburgh, September 30, 2008 — The La Roche College School of Graduate Studies & Adult Education is sponsoring an open house for criminal justice professionals who are interested in the school’s Accelerated Criminal Justice Program on Wednesday, Oct. 22, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the McCandless Township main campus. The open house will take place in the Palumbo Science Center, Room 104.
La Roche’s Accelerated Criminal Justice Program is designed for experienced law enforcement professionals who want to earn a four-year college degree while juggling a hectic home and work schedule. Some highlights of the program are:
• taking classes on a compressed eight-week schedule, which covers all the material of 16-week sessions;
• taking classes online to better fit into busy schedules and shift work;
• the ability to earn both a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a minor or certificate in a variety of related disciplines, like computer technology and forensic science; and
• students get the academic preparation necessary to move on to graduate school or law school – should they decide to pursue those options.
La Roche’s Accelerated Criminal Justice Program also offers credit for experience. Students with five years of full-time law enforcement experience and Act 120 Certification or its equivalent will receive 48 academic credits. Students with an associate degree and/or academic credits from other institutions or those with fewer than five years of experience will be evaluated on an individual basis.
