Associate of Science: Articulated with the Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCJ) Program at Southern Oregon University – 90 Credits
UCC's AS degree in Criminal Justice has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University in Ashland. The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Criminology and Criminal Justice program and allows you to transfer directly as a junior.
In addition to the practical, hands-on skills needed for successful careers in the criminal justice field, UCC students learn how to balance their off-duty lives with the challenges of criminal justice professions. They develop strong communication skills, a broad understanding of case law, legal statues, and professional standards, and learn how to succeed in diverse environments.
All three associate degree options transfer to four-year colleges. The Associate of Science in Criminal Justice is a partnership program that transfers seamlessly to Southern Oregon University in Ashland.
UCC’s Criminal Justice programs are open throughout the year. Students can start any time.
