Criminal Justice & Paralegal Studies

A career in Criminal Justice or Paralegal Studies is a way to give back to the community.  Your role as a public service professional is as versatile as any job can be. Whether it's providing order and enforcing laws, playing an important part in the legal system, or being a role model for a troubled individual, the possibilities are up to you.

The Business, Information Technology, and Public Service Division on East Campus offers both the Criminal Justice and the Paralegal Studies Associate in Science degree programs, and the Behavioral and Social Sciences Division on West Campus offers the Criminal Justice Associate in Science degree program.

Valencia also has the Criminal Justice Institute which offers the state-certified academy training programs that are required to become sworn corrections or law enforcement officers in Florida.
