Irvine, California (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
California Southern University has introduced its new Master of Science in Law Enforcement Executive Leadership (MSLEEL) degree program. The program is designed to prepare criminal justice professionals for leadership positions in 21st-century law enforcement organizations, including police departments, as well as court and corrections systems.
“We are thrilled to bring this much-needed, first-of-its kind degree program to the law enforcement community,” says Tommy Tunson, chairman of CalSouthern’s Department of Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement. “The curriculum is designed to provide the highly specialized knowledge and fast-evolving skill set required to lead a law enforcement organization in today’s society. It was developed in consultation with an advisory board comprised of police chiefs and other recognized leaders in criminal justice to ensure its quality, rigor, and practical applicability,” adds Tunson, himself a former police chief with more than 30 years of law enforcement experience.
CalSouthern’s MSLEEL curriculum is 100-percent online and includes courses in organizational communication, administrative policy, technology management, strategic organizational planning, budget development, homeland security, corrections management, ethics and cultural competency, among others. The accredited program requires completion of 36 credit hours and is anticipated to have an average completion time of approximately two years. The faculty is comprised of educators who are also experienced law enforcement professionals.
Applications for the program are currently being accepted, with monthly course starts commencing March 1, 2014.
