Program description

Administration of Justice Associate in Science Degree for Transfer

Administration of justice is the study of the causes, consequences, and control of crime. The program leading to the Associate in Science in the Administration of Justice for Transfer [AS-T] is designed to acquaint students with the principles and practices of criminal justice systems in America. The curriculum allows for the development of depth in one of the subject’s subsystems (law enforcement, juvenile, courts, or corrections), and also gain familiarity with the basics of all areas. It is both academic and professional in that it is an interdisciplinary attempt to relate intellectual issues and practitioner perspectives to the challenge of crime in a free society. It provides the information necessary for employment with a related agency and/or transfer to a college or university. Those completing the AS-T in Administration of Justice will be able to transfer to the California State University System, and be prepared to study in Administration of Justice, Law Enforcement, Correctional Administration, Social Science, and Pre-Law.
