B.S. in Police Science

The challenges and responsibilities of the modern police officer have undergone tremendous changes. 

Today’s public safety and private security officials must be prepared to meet the needs and expectations of an ever-changing, complex, and diverse society. The Bachelor of Science in Police Science program at Saint Mary’s prepares individuals to better meet these challenges. Together with other working professionals, students study the management, leadership, communication skills, and tools necessary to respond to societal needs.

The program also offers a generous credit transfer policy, including credit for Minnesota POST and military training. Courses are taught by experts in the criminal justice field.

As a working adult, you have experience that matters. Your firsthand knowledge will enhance classroom discussions, and you’ll gain skills that employers want. Plus, with Saint Mary's generous credit transfer policies, the coursework that you've already completed will help you finish your degree faster.
