Police Science



If you find yourself glued to the TV every time Cops comes on, you may want to think about majoring in police science.

You’ll learn the nuts and bolts of police work, from patrolling to investigating, from preventing crime to writing reports. And you’ll prepare to meet the many challenges of police work, including handling people who resist arrest, using force responsibly, and building a strong relationship with the people you’ll protect.
