The Two-Year Associate Degree
The two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Administration of Justice Studies consists of sixty credits (about twenty courses). Of the twenty courses, fifteen are criminal justice courses and the remainder consist of basic college courses in English, math, critical reading, communications, and a lab science.
Most, or even all of the courses you take as part of the two-year AAS degree will transfer to the Justice Studies or Criminal Justice Programs at Arizona State University, Arizona State University West, or Northern Arizona University, if you choose your courses with advice from SCC's Administration of Justice Studies Director and Academic Advisor Dr. John Kavanagh. Transfer of credit to the University of Arizona is not as complete because they do not have a criminal justice program. Transfer to other colleges and universities depends upon the particular college.
