Agent Harrison graduated from SELU with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and obtained her Master of Arts degree in Administration of Justice and Security from the University of Phoenix. Agent Harrison explained that a degree in criminal justice allowed her the ability to think for herself, which she stresses is an important skill to have in the field of law enforcement.
To be a successful member of the law enforcement field, Agent Harrison stresses one should not only be able to think for themselves but also be able to communicate well, think critically, and work well with others. All of these skills, she stresses, are available as part of SELU’s Sociology and Criminal Justice curriculum.
