The online Undergraduate Certificate in Law Enforcement Leadership is designed to help prepare chiefs of police and other key state law enforcement command personnel for their leadership roles through providing professionally relevant education at the undergraduate level. This certificate will provide intermediate level information that is designed to enhance the leadership and management skills of the officers enrolled in the program. The student will take six select courses in leadership and management in order to earn an undergraduate certificate in law enforcement leadership and will serve as a springboard for the student to seek an undergraduate degree in criminal justice, management or other relevant area of study.
