Criminal Justice

Criminal JusticeHave you thought about being a police officer? What about parole or probation officer? Then this is the program for you! At COCC, we offer students two degree options: Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree 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 AAOT with a focus in Criminal Justice offers students a wide array of courses and an introduction to the criminal justice field. For those students who wish to work in the criminal justice field immediately upon graduation, the AAS in Criminal Justice may be your best option.
