Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice Transfer Program

The Criminal Justice program is designed to allow students to complete the first two years of a four-year bachelor's degree program. A variety of courses from a wide range of disciplines are offered to prepare students to transfer to public or private four-year colleges and universities. This degree offers a balanced distribution of criminal justice courses and liberal arts electives.

The Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice degree enables graduates to enter four-year institutions with junior standing in Criminal Justice. If graduates decide to postpone their transfer, the courses in the program could prepare the associate degree graduate for entry-level employment in the criminal justice career field.
