Administration of Justice

The Administration of Justice program offers academic opportunities to students desiring to enter various phases of the Criminal Justice System and security related fields.

The two-year Associate in Applied Science Degree is a minimum degree level for many police agencies at the local and state levels. It also serves as an excellent foundation for the four-year degree program in criminal justice studies offered by many colleges and universities. In addition, the Administration of Justice program offers one-year career studies certificates in Administration of Justice, General Forensic Investigation and Advanced Forensic Investigation, as well as in Security Management for those individuals who wish expanded marketability or expertise in these areas.

Our programs will help lead you to career opportunities in local, state and federal levels of law and security enforcement, investigations, corrections and the courts. Included in these areas are police officers, private and government investigators, corrections officers, probation and parole officers and counselors, prosecutors, court security officers and court administrators.
