The Criminal Justice Associate of Arts degree program prepares graduates to begin careers in law enforcement, corrections, probation, and/or juvenile corrections. This curriculum can serve as a terminal occupational degree program for students seeking immediate employment in the private sector or in government agencies at the local, state, or national level. The balanced, liberal arts degree includes the study of law, criminal justice, social sciences, humanities, behavioral sciences, natural sciences, and general education courses. The degree can apply toward a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice or other majors at several of New Mexico’s four-year state universities. Students who plan to transfer to an upper-level institution should consult catalogs and advisors at those institutions to determine transferability of all courses taken at ENMU-Roswell.
The Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Criminal Justice transfers to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Sciences (BA or BS) degree program at ENMU.
