The AA degree in Criminal Justice provides a course of study which will readily transfer to most four-year colleges and universities. College courses permit completion of the equivalent of the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at many four-year colleges. You will work toward the Criminal Justice concentration and take courses in science, communication, math, humanities, social science and required criminal justice subject areas.
The degree’s general education courses are useful to you whether you continue your formal education at a four-year college or enter the workforce. The AA in Criminal Justice is a useful beginning if you want to get a start in law enforcement, criminal and juvenile justice systems, corrections or security.
If you are planning to transfer to a four-year college, select courses that satisfy requirements of the specific institution to which you intend to transfer. Consult your advisor there anytime you have questions about course selection.
