Students complete 28 courses of the 32 courses required for the Bachelor of Science program with a major in Criminal Justice in residence at SVC. Students interested in this opportunity must specialize in career Track B: Public and Private Law Enforcement. Students recommended by SVC will be required to complete the qualification process and be accepted into the Academy to be eligible to complete a degree in this track.

Upon successful completion of police academy training and certification as a police officer by the state of Vermont, they will be awarded 16 credits. A student who fails to complete police academy training will have to complete all requirements of the Criminal Justice major to receive a degree in Criminal Justice. A student must have a total of five courses at the 300‐ or 400‐level in the major, Criminal Justice electives, and related electives to complete a major in Criminal Justice—Law Enforcement Track.
