Correction Administration A.S. Degree

Our rigorous Criminal Justice-Corrections program is highly regarded throughout the tristate area. Criminal Justice-Corrections, the study and application of correction’s management and systems, is studied by those preparing to be corrections officers and others looking to advance their careers within the corrections system. Our graduates go on to work in federal, state and county prisons, probation, law, research design, human services, and other rewarding fields.

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Discuss the institutional and legal processes of the correctional system in a constitutionally protected arena.
  • Analyze important legal and ethical dilemmas in corrections management.
  • Summarize key issues in correctional institutions and correctional management philosophies.
  • Analyze the ongoing problems in correctional institutions, evaluating alternative suggestions for effective reform.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

Are you interested in transferring to a school in New Jersey? You can use the tools at NJTransfer.org to see which of your MCC courses will transfer to a specific college.
