Many individuals choose to study criminal justice because they want to make a difference. They desire to help those in need, protect the greater good, and serve the people above all else. Within criminal justice, you can work with victims of crime, assist in solving crimes, or help prevent crime in your community.

Using 8-week, compressed classes offered online (with occasional evening synchronous Zoom meetings), you can complete your Associate degree in 24 months (or less, if you have previously completed college coursework).

The ACE program offers the coursework required for the Administration of Justice Associate Degree for Transfer (AS-T.1003). This degree will allow you to transfer to a California State University or other four year university for your Bachelor’s degree.  If you decide you do not want to transfer, you have the option to use the coursework for an AS Degree in Public Safety and Services (AS.1503).
