Criminal Justice

Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice

The Associate of Applied Science Criminal Justice degree program prepares students to evaluate analytically, synthesize information, and use critical-thinking skills to develop appropriate solutions for important criminal justice issues. The program is designed to help students understand the coercive nature of criminal justice decision-making and the need to use logic, ethics, and critical-thinking skills in order to use authority appropriately. NAU offers classes online and on-campus for its Criminal Justice degree program. This degree prepares students for entry-level employment in various criminal justice positions such as police officers, court clerks, court bailiffs, correctional officers, probation officers, parole officers, and other federal law enforcement positions. Policing and institutional corrections employment may also require the completion of a training academy.
