Administration of Justice Studies

The Administration of Justice Studies (AJS) program prepares students for a career in the criminal justice industry, enhance the skills of those already employed within it, offer non-criminal justice students interesting courses to incorporate into their degree programs, and provide others with courses to take for personal enrichment. Here at Scottsdale Community College (SCC) we accomplish these goals by offering a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in both Administration of Justice Studies and Forensic Science. We also offer eight different Certificates of Completion (CCL) to include Law Enforcement, Victimology, Legal Studies, Corrections, Crime Scene Technology, Homeland Security, Fingerprint & Photography, and Justice Studies.

All of our instructors are criminal justice professionals who work, or have worked in the field. Our expertise comes from local and federal law enforcement, crime labs, forensics, victim advocacy, investigations, and probation. We are engaged with our students because we enjoy what we do and want to help them succeed.
