Criminal Justice, Associate of Science
Crime fighting isn’t as glamorous as it seems on TV or in the movies. It requires hard work by well-trained individuals—from the police officers on the street to the highest ranks of law enforcement and everyone in between. That’s where Indiana Tech’s Center for Criminal Sciences comes in.
A growing number of law enforcement agencies require some college education for new officers, and Indiana Tech’s associate degree will fulfill that entry-level requirement. The associate degree program includes eight core courses which examine the criminal justice system as a whole. Subsequent courses take a closer look at individual components of the criminal justice system, such as the police force, the courts, and the corrections system.
Some career opportunities that our students have available to them with an associate of science in criminal justice are:
- State and federal police officer
- Parole officer
- Immigration inspector
- Legal assistant
- Crisis counselor
- Private investigator
- Park ranger
- Youth counselor
- Claims adjuster
