What Can You Do With an Administration of Justice AS-T?

You have a guaranteed transfer path into the California State University (CSU) system to complete your bachelor’s degree. You may also transfer to a UC or private four-year; work closely with your CMC counselor and your intended transfer university.

Likely majors or minors at a CSU include:

  • Art & restorative justice
  • Criminal justice
  • Intelligence & crime analysis
  • Law & philosophy
  • Law & society
  • Pre-law
  • Public administration

After your bachelor’s degree you might go on to law school, pursue specialized certification, or start your career. Studying the administration of justice is a great start to many careers in the public safety and criminal justice fields:

  • Correctional treatment specialist
  • Defense attorney
  • FBI agent
  • Forensic science technician
  • Police detective
  • Probation officer
  • Prosecutor
  • Secret Service agent

You can begin some of these careers at an entry level without a bachelor’s degree. However, advancing will be easier with a university education.

Understanding the Law

If you’re interested in the law, you have an idea how complicated it can be. The experienced professionals who teach at CMC focus on helping you avoid misunderstandings. After you graduate, you’ll use your knowledge and skills in a responsible and practical way to make the world a better place.

Transfer Focused Education

Understanding how the law works is the first step in applying it practically – and that gives you a boost when transferring to a four-year school. At CMC, you get the broad foundation that lets you specialize after you transfer.
