Garett is a student in Northark’s new criminal justice program and is set to graduate this May. Garett said his passion for criminal justice comes from wanting to help the community and caring about people, paired with an interest in psychology. “Law enforcement has always been a career that makes perfect sense,” he said.
Northark’s criminal justice program began in 2014 and has grown in the number of students who are obtaining degrees. Northark also offers students a seamless option for transfer into Arkansas State University’s bachelor’s degree program in criminology. ASU streams their upper level criminal justice classes live or recorded using compressed video.
After graduating, Garett hopes to land a law enforcement job. “I think I would really enjoy a career in law enforcement,” he said. “I think it would be really engaging to be on a special response team like special weapons or tactics.”
Northark offers associate degrees, online degrees, one-year certificates, certificates of proficiency, GED classes and non-credit community education courses in more than 70 areas of study.
