Criminal Justice


The Criminal Justice Program is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement, corrections, and the court system. With traditional classroom or online tracks available, Blinn offers Associate of Arts, Associate of Applied Science, and Law Enforcement Technology degrees in criminal justice, as well as Criminal Justice Corrections and Basic Peace Officer certificates and Occupational Skills Awards in Criminal Justice and Judicial Practices.

Students who complete the program are eligible for a variety of local, state, and federal careers, including law enforcement, investigation, corrections operation, corrections counseling, a variety of court positions, government administration, and probation. Similar careers also are available through private companies.

In addition to classroom instruction, students are provided targeted training to enhance their professional opportunities with local, county, and state agencies, including training at the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Central Texas Police Academy in Bryan. This partnership allows Blinn Criminal Justice students to receive 17 weeks of practical training with law enforcement equipment in addition to the usual classroom instruction.

Criminal Justice courses in Bryan are held at the RELLIS Campus (designated as “RL” in the course catalog). If you have been accepted into Blinn but can’t register for a CRIJ course (for instance, you get a campus restriction), e-mail, state that you intend to be a criminal justice major, and your campus designation will be changed to RELLIS.
