The program prepares students for a career in the criminal justice system as well as advancing the education of employed criminal justice professionals. From a theoretical understanding of human behavior and its relationship to law, students learn criminal justice goals and functions. Among the employment opportunities for graduates are state and local patrol officers, company investigators, security positions, and entry-level positions in correctional agencies.
For professions requiring a four-year degree, the Criminal Justice Program offers transferable credit to four-year colleges and universities. Graduates of the program may transfer as third-year Criminal Justice students to Northeastern University, Southern Vermont College, University of New Haven, Curry College, Trinity College of Vermont, and Salem State University.
Simultaneous awarding of Certificate and Degree policy: Certificates whose coursework is embedded in an Associate's degree program will not be awarded simultaneously in the same term as the degree is awarded; i.e. Criminal Justice(CRD) and Criminal Justice Certificate(CRC).
