Effective Fall 2016, the AAS - Criminal Justice program with concentrations in Law Enforcement and Corrections is being phased out and replaced by a Criminal Justice program that has an extensive library of courses from which students can select courses to fulfill personal interest and elective requirements. The existing program with concentrations in Law Enforcement and Corrections will remain open for a period of time so that current students can finish their program and concentration of study.
The Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice is designed to address the educational needs of individuals who desire to enter or advance their career within the field of criminal justice. Two concentrations will be offered within the major -- Law Enforcement and Corrections. Graduates of the Law Enforcement concentration will be prepared to assume roles in police departments, while graduates of the Corrections concentration will be prepared to work as professionals in correctional facilities.
Concentration (select one - 12 credit hours required)
