Criminal Justice

Criminal JusticeHave you thought about being a police officer? What about parole or probation officer? Then this is the degree for you! At COCC, we offer students two choices: Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) or associate of applied science (AAS) degree.

Designed so that students can easily transfer to an Oregon public university to pursue a bachelor's degree, the AA program offers students a wide array of courses and an introduction to the criminal justice field. Please see the AAOT requirements.

For those students who wish to work in the criminal justice field immediately upon graduation, the AAS, a one-year certificate in Juvenile Corrections or courses in Proficiencies Areas may be your best option.
