Platt College’s Criminal Justice program prepares you to enter the various occupational fields of the criminal justice system.

The Criminal Justice program at the Platt School of Legal Studies prepares graduates to pursue careers in law enforcement, criminology, corrections, court administration, victim services, security administration, and immigration.

Our Criminal Justice curriculum balances theory and application to provide students with foundational knowledge as well as communication and organizational skills.  The program includes a study of the national criminal justice system, ethics, and an overview of criminal law.

Additional coursework focuses on specialized areas in the field such as correctional organizations, private security, criminal investigative techniques, juvenile justice, terrorism, and forensics.  General education courses in mathematics, English, speech, and psychology round out the curriculum.

As part of its Criminal Justice curriculum, Platt College offers students the opportunity to earn their Guard Card certificate.  The College is authorized by the Bureau of Security And Investigative Services (BSIS), a division of the Department of Consumer Affairs in the state of California to offer this training, which includes  8 hour power to arrest training, as well as the additional 32 hours of training required (in various subjects) to become a licensed security guard in California.

Platt College’s Business Management program prepares graduates who are interested in working in a business-related field such as sales, marketing, operations, finance, accounting, human resources, or office administration.

The Business Management program is designed for students interested in starting a small business, or who are interested in working in a business-related field such as sales, marketing, operations, finance, accounting, human resources, or office administration.   Instruction to familiarize students with the core business functions is supplemented by coursework geared towards introducing and improving key business skills:

  • How to develop a business plan
  • Basic accounting and bookkeeping
  • Marketing and sales effectiveness
  • Managing and motivating employees
  • Business law
  • Becoming an entrepreneur
  • Application of selected business software

Business Management graduates typically pursue entry-level career opportunities in a broad spectrum of positions essential to operating and growing a business: sales, marketing, data analysis, bookkeeping, human resources, employee administration, and office management.

Our curriculum combines classroom learning with opportunities to apply theory to real-world business situations through group projects and case studies.
