Associate of Arts Degree
Sioux City Campus

Program Description

This program is designed to prepare students for beginning professional work in the criminal justice and allied professions.  Graduates understand the causes of crime and criminal justice system responses.  Students focus on the nature of the criminal justice system and the connection between law and social justice.  Criminologists and criminal justice professionals investigate why crimes are committed, who is committing them, what type of societal factors might be contributing to higher crime rates, and the best ways to predict, deter, and prevent future crimes.  An undergraduate with a criminology/criminal justice degree serves as a strong foundation for advanced training and prepares students for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in social science, social work, counseling, and law.
