MCC Criminal Justice Student Testimonials

"I like that we don't just focus on one thing. We spent time exploring them all. From the police academy to the jail, courthouse, crime scenes, the morgue, and in community, I've learned something valuable in each that I'll take with me even past graduation.

I got to see the community. I got to experience the people and share their stories. I was a part of their stories. That's a relationship that never would have been possible without the Criminal Justice program."

-Adrian Ausler, Kansas City,  student 


“I received so much more than just a degree. I was able to meet friends and it was more than I expected. The instructors helped me make it through the program. Mentally, it challenges you. It was definitely a life-changer.”

-Chessina Ward, Kansas City, student
