About Monroe College
Monroe College was founded in 1933 with a single goal: To educate men and women for a successful future. Monroe is recognized as a leader in providing a focused, career-oriented, quality education that integrates classroom learning with real-world experience.

Students, instructors, and staff work together to reach their goals and to have each other’s backs. Monroe works with you to jumpstart your career from day one. The practical skills you learn, your internships, the relationships you build with employers in your field — they’re all focused on your future. At Monroe, everyone’s got your back. You’ll be given the information and skills needed to empower you, solve problems and make decisions in the real world. You’ll be better positioned to compete in the marketplace and forge a path of your very own. Monroe’s faculty and staff are wholly committed to your success. They will be your mentors, your advocates, your champions, and your cheerleaders, from the day you apply until the day you graduate and beyond. Rest assured, you will never feel lost in the crowd at Monroe.
Monroe’s associate degree in Criminal Justice is the foundation you need for entry-level positions in both traditional and non-traditional areas. That’s because the criminal justice system has three major components: law enforcement, the court system, and corrections. Choose to go into law enforcement or security, social services, counseling, administration, or court management.
At Monroe, you’re not going to just sit in a classroom. You’ll get the chance to put your academic smarts to the test in the real world when you do an internship. And you’ll broaden your experiences and your network by joining a club or honor society connected with your field.
