Option B:  The BAAS Program with Criminal Justice Emphasis
2012-2014 Catalog


The Criminal Justice emphasis provides students the background to pursue employment options in the criminal justice career field. The combination of such courses as law enforcement, political science, psychology, sociology, and social work prepares those already working in the field for career advancement.  For those wishing to enter a criminal justice field, the degree offers the graduate the possibility of employment in such career fields as federal, state, and local law enforcement, institutional and community-based corrections, and criminal investigations.

Academic Foundations and Core Curriculum (see degree plan)

Occupational Specialty (24-36 semester hours)  (see degree plan)

Credits toward an area of coherent specialization may be earned from community colleges, this university and other senior institutions, workforce education, vocational or technical schools, armed forces schools, work experiences, and non-traditional learning experiences that can be equated to college credit.  To qualify for work experience credit, a student must have 3 consecutive years of full-time employment within the last 6 years.  A student may be awarded 2 hours of credit for each qualifying year of job experience related to the student’s occupational specialty up to a maximum of 6 hours.  Credit for non-traditional experiences is granted on the basis of evaluation by the Director and the BAAS staff utilizing the National Guide of the American Council on Education (ACE) and other appropriate publications.  Documentation will be placed in the student’s permanent file in the Office of the Registrar.  A minimum of 24 semester hours in the area of occupational specialty must be completed before the student can be accepted into the program. Cognate vocational-technical courses may be accepted within the area of occupational specialty or professional development.
