Program is designed for students wanting to complete the first 2 years of a bachelor’s degree at the community college and transfer to a university to complete a Criminal Justice BA or BS. Criminal justice, policing and correction systems are explored. Some careers require a bachelor’s degree. Studying Criminal Justice gives us a better understanding of the three main parts of the criminal justice system: law enforcement, the judicial system, and corrections. This program focuses closely on criminal behavior, criminal law, and constitutional law. Criminal Justice requires a willingness to be understanding of different cultures. This program introduces students to the study of Criminal Justice and includes courses that are common to all Colorado four-year institutions. Career paths for Criminal Justice degree holders lead to a variety of federal, state, and local criminal justice agencies. These include correctional institutions, juvenile corrections, and treatment facilities, law enforcement agencies, courts, private security, and investigation work. The Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Criminal Justice prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Criminal Justice at a four-year university.
