Police Science A.S. Degree

Our rigorous Criminal Justice programs are highly regarded throughout the tristate area. Criminal Justice – the study and application of laws regarding criminal behavior – is studied by those preparing to be police, defense and prosecution lawyers, judges or others working within the criminal justice system. Our graduates go on to work in probation, law, research design, human services, social work, counseling, and other rewarding fields.

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

  • Analyze the institutional and legal processes of criminal law and the administration of justice in the United States, and how police, courts and the correctional system interact in a constitutionally protected arena.
  • Evaluate important legal and ethical dilemmas in the administration of justice.
  • Summarize key issues in constitutional law, the New Jersey Court System, judicial treatment, contemporary police procedures, and community policing.
  • Appraise ongoing problems in policing, court systems, and evaluating alternative suggestions for effective reform.
  • Use appropriate tools of research and analysis to produce effective written and oral communication.

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.
