Successful students will receive an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Administration of Justice or a Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Administration of Justice, Law Enforcement, or Corrections.

All AJS courses are taught by current or retired criminal justice system practitioners who have years of experience working within the criminal justice arena, using the latest technology and tools, and sharing their personal knowledge and experience to prepare you to work in this very diverse industry that blends science, criminal justice and law enforcement.

EMCC’s courses are interdisciplinary in nature and provide students with a broad knowledge of the occupational issues and concerns existent within the criminal justice system.
