Curriculum

The criminal justice curriculum includes core courses that provide a broad and coherent approach to the six content areas identified by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.  Students may transfer up to 90 credits to Cal U but no more than one-half of the credits in the criminal justice major may be transferred to Cal U. Prior learning assessment may be used to earn credit for life experiences, military training, and professional certifications.

  • Students who transfer to Cal U with an earned associate degree only need 60 program credits to earn the bachelor of science degree.
  • Students who transfer to Cal U with 50 or more credits but no associate degree need up to 72 credits; 60 program credits plus up to 12 option credits to earn the bachelor of science degree.
  • Transfer students with less than 50 credits earned may have their transcripts evaluated by the program coordinator for an admission decision or enroll in the on-ground criminal justice program at Cal U.
