Student Learning Outcomes for Criminal Justice Program:
The Associate of Science Degree in Criminal Justice is designed for students preparing to transfer to ASU-Jonesboro to obtain a baccalaureate degree in the field of criminology. While ASU-Jonesboro accepts this transfer degree in its entirety, it is not given that the A.S. degree will transfer to other baccalaureate programs.
The program is designed for graduates to pursue a career in criminal justice. Credit will be awarded to those students who have completed applicable course work at the Arkansas Police Academy. Students pursuing an A.A.S. in Criminal Justice should be aware that a criminal history might prevent them from eligibility for completing CRJ 2273 Criminal Justice Internship. This course requires a criminal background check.
