Criminal Justice @ Genesee

Genesee's Criminal Justice A.S. degree program 105 KB prepares students to successfully transfer to a four-year institution and enroll in a Criminal Justice program or related field for a baccalaureate degree.  Genesee has articulation agreements with a number of SUNY and private colleges who accept credit earned and welcome our students.

At Genesee, your education focuses on a strong liberal arts background similar to the first two years of criminal justice programs offered by four-year colleges and universities.  In addition to the general education requirements, you will also pursue a core curriculum of criminal justice courses.

The A.A.S. degree program 116 KB is designed for students preparing to enter the workforce upon graduation for a career in law enforcement, corrections, the court system, community service, public or private security, or homeland security.  The A.A.S. Degree Program has a number of concentrations available that allow students to take courses specific to their interests.  These include:  policing, corrections counseling, emergency management/homeland security, forensics and general concentrations.  As a graduate you will be well prepared for an entry level position in criminal justice.

The Criminal Justice certificate program 79 KB helps prepare you for employment opportunities, or assists you in developing a deeper background in the field if you are already employed within the criminal justice system. You can also apply your certificate program courses towards either of the associate’s degree programs above.

Most of the courses for all degree programs may be taken on-line in the eLearning format.

You can further enhance your criminal justice experience by participating in the Criminal Justice Club.  The student based association promotes the CJ field by sponsoring guest speakers, taking field trips, hosting seminars, and providing service learning activities by assisting with security details on campus.
