The public service fields are among the Midlands strongest growth areas in terms of available jobs. The public service area is one that appeals to many people because of the sense of reward derived from assisting others. The Public Service programs in the Business department have diverse offerings. Included are Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Development, Human Services and Paralegal. These prepare students for becoming a police officer, corrections officer, or specialist in the forensics lab: working in the field of early childhood education; providing help with everything from substance abuse to mental health; and working in small to large law firms and in corporate or government legal offices. Transfer programs are also available in some of the public service programs.
