Whether individuals are just finishing high school or are 20-year law enforcement veterans, JCC's criminal justice degree challenges them to sharpen essential skills and make informed judgments. In today's fast-paced world, professionals must communicate clearly, analyze situations, and apply proven tactics. Our criminal justice degree includes solid grounding in criminal evidence, criminal administrative procedures, technical writing, psychology, sociology, and American government. Students also choose between criminology and juvenile delinquency while completing requirements in laboratory science and mathematics. There are plenty of electives to choose from including community corrections, sex-crime investigations, interviews/interrogations, and hundreds of classes in other subject areas. The field of Criminal Justice is widely varied, containing many diverse job descriptions and opportunities. Many skills will be obtained in this course of study, which are applicable to both transfer students and those seeking employment immediately upon graduation.
