Program Details

Students who have an interest in criminal justice and are looking for a career that makes use of their passion may wish to consider Mid Michigan Community College’s Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Corrections. This two-year associate's degree will give students a foundation education in how the law works in America, with a special focus on prison and jail institutions. Students will become well educated in topics such as probation, parole, and juvenile dentition, among others. Experience Instructors will show students how the prevention, treatment and control of offenders are handled within a variety of states. This degree also includes a broad liberal arts education that emphasizes the skills sought by employers in the criminal justice industry. Although graduates will be able to enter the collections workforce immediately after earning their degree, this program can also be a good fit for students who wish to pursue further academic advancement in criminal justice such as a bachelor's degree.

This program requires students to complete a total of 62 credit hours over the course of two years. Eighty percent of the classes will be available online, but students should expect to attend some classes on campus in Harrison, MI. The mostly online class blend will allow students to work on their coursework on their own personal schedule. Students who are working full-time may find this to be a great non-traditional learning solution to balance work and school. Students will be able to choose either State Corrections or Local Detention as their focus, allowing them to customize this program to suit their future career goals.
