Criminal Justice A.A.S.
Whether you're interested in law enforcement, private security, probation/parole, correctional institutions, jails, defense law or prosecution law, you will receive a solid foundation by studying Criminal Justice.
Upon completion of an associate of science degree, you will have acquired a thorough understanding of the American criminal justice system's structure, organization, and function. With the A.S. you can take advantage of the Tennessee Transfer Path program that allows for transfer to any participating four-year institution to work toward a bachelor's degree. See your advisor for other transfer options in and out of state.
What is a TTP?
Tennessee Transfer Pathways are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university to complete their baccalaureate degree. The Tennessee Transfer Pathways also constitute an agreement between community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at Chattanooga State. When the student transfers to a Tennessee public university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer.
