Associate of Applied Science
This intensive program is recommended for students who wish to enter the criminal justice field shortly after graduation. This degree option is not generally recommended for students transferring to a four-year school. Emphasis is placed on practical application as well as theory. Students develop the skills required for entry into criminal justice or related industries. The curriculum may be modified to reflect student interests, to meet their educational goals or the requirements of a particular criminal justice agency.
Upon completing the 52 credit hour Criminal Justice Technical Certificate, a student may choose to enter the KLETC or equivalent law enforcement academy training. Students can transfer those credits back to CCC to be awarded the Associate of Applied Science.
CCC also offers an Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice for students wanting to transfer to a four-year school.
