The Administration of Justice Program provides quality instruction for transfer, degree, and occupational students. The courses reflect skills and knowledge that have been identified by our transfer institutions and local criminal justice employers as critical to student success in the classroom, in online courses, and in the communities where students will be employed.
Administration of Justice is a multi-disciplinary program that seeks to educate students on the many aspects of justice administration—from the human, social and moral problems to the larger scope of justice systems. Students can earn a associate of science degree and or prepare for transfer to a four-year college or university in order to earn a bachelors degree or masters degree.

Corrections - correctional officer, probation officer
Law - attorney, prosecutor, defense attorney
Law enforcement - police officer, deputy sheriff, peace officer
Probation - adult probation, juvenile probation
