Associates Degree - Criminal Justice Technology

The Associate in Science Degree in Criminal Justice provides dynamic and intensive instruction in all aspects of the Criminal Justice system. The first quarter focuses on core foundational Criminal Justice courses like Criminal Justice, Corrections and the Court System. Starting in the second quarter and continuing into the sixth quarter, students are exposed to various specialized disciplines under the Criminal Justice umbrella and will gain valuable hands-on experience in a variety of topics, including financial and cyber crimes; police operations and report writing; criminal procedure; forensic science; firearm skills; drugs; and terrorism, gang and organized crime issues.

Criminal Justice students will utilize the skills and knowledge acquired to participate in an all-encompassing Criminal Justice Portfolio beginning in the second quarter and continuing until graduation. The Criminal Justice Portfolio is a life-like investigative assignment starting with the commission of a mock crime event, gathering of victim and witness statements, processing a crime scene, and collection of evidence. This realistic process will culminate with the presentation of testimony in a Moot Court/Mock Trial scenario during which the student will present a portfolio that has been constructed and maintained by the student during the entire investigative process.

In the sixth quarter, students may have the option to participate in a Criminal Justice Externship where they will work with criminal justice professionals in the community. During this Externship students will have opportunities to apply classroom training to real life situations in various police departments, courts, correctional facilities, and investigative agencies and gain first-hand knowledge of the Criminal Justice system. In addition, after completing certain prerequisites, graduates of this program are eligible to continue on for a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management Technology.

Graduates of this program will be qualified to seek entry-level employment in a number of challenging Criminal Justice professions, such as Police Officer, State Trooper, Correctional Officer, Court Officer, Criminal Justice Counselor, Federal Law Enforcement Officer, Private Security Officer, Crime Scene Investigator, Corporate Loss Prevention, and Insurance Claims Investigator. (Please note: a criminal record may affect a graduate's ability to qualify for some Law Enforcement positions.)
