“I applied for the bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at LIU Brentwood the same day I learned about it. When I graduated, I went straight into the criminal justice master’s degree program. I’m interested in a career in law enforcement, but down the road, I also want to teach criminal justice, like my professors. LIU Brentwood is giving me the education I need to serve my community and build my career.”
