Associate in Public Service
Credit Requirements: 66 Semester Credit Hours
The Criminal Justice associate degree program serves 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 who are already employed in the system and 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 sociology at four-year institutions. Students may receive college transfer credit for classes in which a grade of C or better was earned from other approved, accredited postsecondary institutions. Official transcripts must be submitted before credit can be granted. Contact your advisor for more information.
