Associate Criminal Justice
 

Rapid growth of the modern criminal justice system is creating a demand for skilled workers as never before in local, state and federal systems, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Today's criminal justice workforce must be knowledgeable and skilled in every component of the system to address the public's demand for protection and services. Educated and skilled individuals are needed, from the traditional roles of law enforcement, security and corrections, to work with victim advocacy, juveniles and social services.

The Associate of Science in Criminal Justice degree program is designed to help prepare students to enter the criminal justice field in a variety of first-tier positions.
