Criminal Justice Online Programs

The Criminal Justice Associate in Applied Science degree program has been designed in response to the need for professionally trained and competent criminal justice practitioners. Generally, three groups of students are served: those who plan to seek employment in public or private agencies immediately upon completion of the two-year degree; those already employed in the system who have a desire for further education in order to qualify for professional advancement; and those who intend to pursue advanced studies in criminal justice, criminology, or other curricula at four-year institutions.

The Criminal Justice certificates are designed to prepare the student for positions where more diverse education is required. Generally, two groups of students are served: those who already have a degree in another discipline and wish to take courses in criminal justice; and those who need to upgrade their education in criminal justice and prepare for advancement within their current positions that do not require an associate degree.

The Criminal Justice associate degree prepares students for entry-level positions in law enforcement agencies as police officers and civilian support staff; in corrections and detention facilities as corrections officers and jailers; in prosecutors' offices and criminal defense firms as investigators, clerks, and support staff; in private security agencies as security officers and investigators; and in homeland and corporate security departments as investigators, risk analysis officers, and loss prevention and emergency planners where a degree is required. The degree also positions employees for pay raises and promotion eligibility.
