Criminal and Administration of Justice
Criminal & Administration of Justice is the study of the causes, consequences and control of crime. The program leading to the Criminal Justice Associate of Art (AA) and the Administration of Justice Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed to acquaint pre-service and in-service students with the principles and practices of criminal justice systems in America. Although the program’s curriculum allows for the development of depth in one of the subject’s major systems (i.e., law enforcement, juvenile justice, courts or corrections), the objective of this program is to familiarize students with concepts in all of the above areas.
The Criminal & Administration of Justice program is both academic and professional in that it is an interdisciplinary approach to relating intellectual issues and practitioner perspectives to the challenge of crime in a free society. Consequently, the program provides preparation for employment with a related agency and/ or transfer to a four-year college or university. Students completing the Criminal & Administration of Justice program will be prepared to work in a variety of positions such as municipal police officers, county deputy sheriffs, probation or correctional officers, game wardens, state park officers, and private security officers.
