Criminal Justice

The field of criminal justice presents a challenging field of study for people interested in public service. The everincreasing problem of crime, as well as continued population growth, provides many opportunities to those who have prepared themselves through education and training. This program provides an avenue to obtain an associate in applied science degree in criminal justice. The associate degree program consists of both criminal justice and academic courses. It serves as the first two years of study for the baccalaureate degree in criminal justice or law enforcement in many senior colleges and universities.
