Purpose: The Administration of Justice Specialization of the General Studies Transfer degree program is designed for students who plan to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Administration of Justice, Police Science or Homeland Security at a four-year college or university.

Students who complete this program of study may be eligible to earn junior-class standing at a four-year college or university and will have complete courses that generally serve as prerequisites for advanced undergraduate coursework in Administration of Justice. Like other transfer degree programs, students pursuing the Administration of Justice Specialization take courses that are accepted at most public four year institutions in a wide variety of baccalaureate degree programs. However, departments of Administration of Justice or Criminal Justice differ greatly in their approaches to the undergraduate major and students are urged to acquaint themselves with the degree requirements of potential college or university transfer destinations.

Admission Requirements: All students will be required to demonstrate college readiness through assessment and/or transcript review and may be required to take placement tests in math, writing, and reading to aid in placing students in the appropriate courses. Students who do not meet required placement levels must enroll in developmental studies courses.
