Administration of Justice (Criminology)

Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer 2017 - 2018

(Major#C.8880.AS-T)

The Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer Degree prepares students for transfer into a four-year degree at any of the California State Universities campuses. The criminology program is the study of the causes, consequences, and control of crime and is focused on either the study of Law Enforcement or Corrections. While the program’s curriculum allows for the development of depth in one of the subject’s substantive subsystems (i.e. law enforcement, juvenile, courts, investigations, corrections, or probation and parole), our goal is to familiarize students with activities which focus on their area of choice (Law Enforcement or Corrections).

Successful completion of the Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer Degree guarantees the student acceptance to a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major) to pursue a baccalaureate degree, in preparation to pursue a career in the field of Law Enforcement, Corrections, or any related field (i.e. Criminal Research, Law, Forensic Criminology, Public Safety or Private/Industrial Security).
