Criminal Justice

Transfer Program

The Criminal Justice program provides an overview of the criminal justice system, including law enforcement, the court system, criminal law, corrections, police-community relations, ethics, probation, and parole, learning the fundamentals of research design and analysis. This program serves those who might find an entry level position with an associate’s degree and fulfills the first two years of a program for students interested in pursuing a career in the criminal justice field where earning a Bachelor’s or higher degree is either an advantage or required. Positions available to graduates of a criminal justice program may be found in the areas of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, various other governmental agencies, corrections, probation, and parole systems, private security agencies, advocacy, careers dealing with policy and planning, and insurance companies.

Completion of the following courses results in an associate’s degree and meets the general core requirements at all Idaho public universities. The suggested coursework normally fulfills the first half of baccalaureate degree requirements in Criminal Justice. Course selections should be tailored to match requirements of the intended transfer institution.
