Criminal Justice, Associate of Applied Science


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Criminal Justice is a two-year degree program designed to lead directly to employment, or career advancement, in the field of criminal justice. Typical careers include law enforcement, probation officer, corrections officer or even social work.

The AAS degree is stackable with the Associate of Science (AS) degree in criminal justice. However, any student who plans to transfer to a four-year institution, or plans to eventually pursue a bachelor’s degree, should follow the Associate of Science (AS) path in criminal justice.
