A.S. CRIMINAL JUSTICE TECHNOLOGY
DEGREE TRACKS


This is the primary degree for Criminal Justice majors. The A.S. degree will transfer into similar upper division programs in Florida universities and colleges allowing graduates to enter these universities and colleges as a junior and seek a Bachelors Degree. The Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies Program recommends this Degree for criminal justice majors.

Our students can seek to emphasize different degree tracks depending on their educational and career goals.

Students may choose a particular degree track and then take those classes recommended. Students who do not wish to choose a particular degree track can select the General Criminal Justice option.

PLEASE NOTE:  Students do not enroll or register into a Degree Track.   They enroll into the AS.CJT program.   Degree Tracks are simply meant to assist students in selecting the most appropriate electives based on their career or educational goals.    Criminal Justice Majors are free to choose any criminal justice elective to satisfy the elective requirements of this Degree.
