    The eminent fame of this college all across the state and the faculty cell which the college offered was the two prime reasons why I wanted to become a part of this institution. With an academic background of psychology in my pre grads and a marks statement with 95 percentile in the concerned subject, I applied and fulfilled the basic preconditions for getting admitted to the college, ranging from filling up the common application form and submitting an application fee of $25 along with the documents mentioned in the admission catalog through email.

    Course Curriculum :

    This branch of law and criminology was extremely crucial for shaping my career, since it is here that i learnt the terminologies in relation to Theological Foundations of Justice and Restoration, Introduction to Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement, Criminology, Juvenile Justice, Systems of Correction, Ethics and Professionalism, Substance Abuse and Social Psychology.
