For those seeking to add a criminal justice degree to their resumes, there are many specialty programs available in the field. Now, Florida State University (FSU) has partnered with Tallahassee Community College (TCC) to offer students an avenue to a number of degree programs in law enforcement and safety.

Through the agreement, students enrolled in TCC’s criminal justice program will be able to take classes through FSU Panama City and Florida A&M University (FAMU) in public safety and security, police science or law enforcement operations, according to ABC affiliate WTXL TV.

Evidence shows that the sooner students develop their career goals and get started in their course work toward those goals the better their retention and success rates are, Barbara Sloan, TCC provost and vice president for academic affairs, told the news agency. “This agreement gives TCC students a great opportunity to participate in a major as early as their second year of college.”

The partnership will emphasize increased communication, the sharing of data and student advising, as well as a scholarship program available for TCC graduates planning to attend FAMU.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for police and detectives are expected to increase by 10% through the end of the decade.
