Program Overview

Be a community hero through a career in criminal justice! Our Criminal Justice degree is the first step to preparing mentally and physically for the rigors of the field. Our two programs (Criminal Justice AAS & Criminal Justice AS) will teach you the processes and technology used in modern criminal justice work, and you’ll learn the constitutional rights of citizens, offenders, and victims while positioning yourself to build positive community relationships. Upon graduation, you’ll have the skills needed for public and private corrections, security, and law enforcement. Some careers in criminal justice require continued education through a state specific academy. Be sure to speak with a career counselor to determine how this degree can help you prepare for the future.
