Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Pre-major
Department Chair: James Humenik, 847-635-1910, firstname.lastname@example.org
The following Pre-major is recommended for students who are considering completing a Bachelor’s degree in Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice after transferring to a four-year institution. It is designed for students who have not decided upon a specific four-year college or university. Once a transfer school is selected, students are strongly encouraged to consult the Office of Advising, Transitions, and Student Success and the transfer institution’s catalog to select courses that will meet both Oakton and transfer institution requirements.
For more information on course selection or program-specific advising, contact the Department Chair. Part time students should also consult the Office of Advising, Transition, and Student Success for part-time Pre-major recommendations. General Education courses should be selected from the list of IAI General Education Courses.
