and the Diversity/Global View graduation requirements

Associate in Applied Science Degree [A.A.S.]
The Criminal Justice curriculum is designed to prepare students to enter a range of
occupations in the criminal justice system and to continue their college educations.
The core courses form a foundation for understanding the operation of the
criminal justice system, the causes of crime and delinquency, the history and

application of criminal justice and constitutional law, and the ethical bases of

criminal justice decision making. Electives address the diverse issues facing the
criminal justice system and encourage students to gain more specialized
knowledge of policing, juvenile justice, corrections, and the private sector.
Input from the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee and the opportunity to
participate in a one-semester internship provide links to criminal justice practice.
High School Math Course 1 or its equivalent is required.
