Program Overview

Eastern Wyoming College offers an online Associate of Arts degree in Criminal Justice designed for students interested in pursuing employment with agencies that require four-year degrees, such as probation/parole and federal agencies, or those wanting to obtain a law degree.  Distance learning courses in this discipline are offered in a three-year rotation pattern.  The student also has two options for an area of emphasis in either Law Enforcement or Corrections. 

The AA in Criminal Justice is a 65-credit-hour program taught over four semesters.  Faculty includes professionals with law enforcement, corrections, and county attorney work experience.

Distance learning courses are delivered within the time frame of a standard semester and therefore must be finished in that time.  Likewise, students should make arrangements to complete exams required for courses. 

There are five ways courses are delivered through distance learning, including compressed videos through EWC’s website, telecourse VHS copies, internet documents, web conferencing, and through text-based correspondence (mail, e-mail, and telephone).  Distance learning students should be aware of their own personal habits because courses taught through this method require discipline and self-motivation.
