Get started on a rewarding career in the growing field of private investigation at City College! This is one of today’s hottest fields, growing at over 22% percent annually over the 2008-18 decade, much faster than the average for all occupations1. Our associate’s degree in Private Investigation program will open the doors to a financially rewarding career that can include plenty of adventure and intrigue. In a short period of time, you could be conducting in-depth investigations and doing surveillance and forensic work.

City College’s private investigation program teaches students how to think and act like a detective. You’ll study with instructors who are seasoned professionals in the business, and get hands-on exposure to the strategies and techniques private investigators use to conduct their searches.
