The Administration of Justice program is your gateway to making your community a better, safer place to live. We provide options for three different concentrations in the Criminal Justice system: Law Enforcement, Courts and Corrections.

  • Are you a hands-on person, aiming to fix problems before they start? In the Law Enforcement concentration, we will teach you to specialize in police activities, such as effective patrol and investigations. We offer the first two modules of a Modular Format POST-approved Law Enforcement Academy.
  • In our Courts concentration, you will learn to serve the public through trials and court proceedings that ensure the fair, impartial administration of justice.
  • In the Corrections concentration, you will learn how you can play a key role in the justice system by working with deviant members of society and helping them become responsible, law-abiding citizens.
In order to provide the best education possible, our Administration of Justice department is constantly being modified and updated to meet the best possible industry standards.

The Administration of Justice program offers three areas of concentration. Each area has its own core classes everyone must complete. In addition, a minimum of six additional units must be selected from the degree concentration to complete the degree program.

Courses are available in Law Enforcement, specializing in police activities including effective patrol services to the public. Courts, specializing in responsibilities to the public through the trial system. Corrections, where the deviant member of society is subjected to society’s effort to change the deviant behavior.

Courses will continue to be developed and modified to conform to the needs expressed by the public in each of the three areas of concentration.
