- Dual credit/Transfer credit – This plan is designed for students with no dual or transfer credit. Consider any prior college credit to avoid repeating coursework. We will need official transcripts for these courses.
- Developmental Studies – This plan assumes that the student does not need to take Developmental Studies courses. Placement test scores determine whether or not the student will need to complete Developmental Studies courses. You can learn more about Developmental Studies courses in the NCMC Academic Catalog.
Upon completion of this program, successful students will be able to:
- Analyze the philosophy, policies, processes, and reforms of the criminal justice system including police, courts, and corrections;
- Evaluate the nature, extent, causation, and prevention of crime;
- Produce written reports appropriate for criminal justice fieldwork with proper documentation;
- Facilitate civil and respectful conversation and identify legal and moral responsibilities of criminal justice professionals.
