Criminal Justice Transfer

CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Associate in Science Degree
The Quincy College Criminal Justice Program is designed to prepare individuals for the various aspects of Criminal Justice in the region. The program options available to students offer several routes of preparation. In any Criminal Justice course, students may find themselves in classrooms with police officers, private security professionals, government agency staff, and prospective social scientists. Students are encouraged to carefully review each Criminal Justice track, and the options available within each, in order to more effectively identify the program best suited for their career and personal goals. There are two (2) degree tracks within Criminal Justice. They are:

Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement

Program Description
The Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Program is designed to prepare students for entry level positions in the criminal justice profession or to provide additional training or further advancement for those already employed in the criminal justice field by emphasizing courses in the theory and practice of Criminal Justice and closely related topics.

At the completion of the Criminal Justice Program, the student should be able to:
• Demonstrate knowledge of the structure and functions of the police, courts, and corrections
• Analyze how theories of criminal behavior explain such behavior, and how those theories relate to the criminal justice system

Some Helpful Frequently Asked Questions about Criminal Justice:

Why study Criminal Justice at Quincy College instead of going right to a University?
Quincy College offers courses that are similar to the first two years of study towards a Bachelors degree. This is of great benefit for U.S. and international students because it is less expensive, the class size is smaller, and faculty members are more accessible to students. Students can complete their first two years at Quincy College and then transfer their credits to a university to complete their Bachelor’s degree for their final two years.

What can I do with a CJ degree?
A Criminal Justice degree is needed to be competitive for a job as a: police officer, Sheriff, criminal investigator, fraud investigator, loss prevention agent or manager, armed security officer, security director, corrections officer or a crime scene investigator (CSI).

Federal jobs preferring a Criminal Justice degree include ATF, FBI, DEA or Department of Homeland Security agents, to name just a few.

Is this a “Quinn Bill” certified program?
Yes, Quincy College continues to be certified under the “Quinn” legislation.

Do you offer internships as part of the program?
Yes. Quincy College offers competitive internships through partnering agencies. To compete for an internship students must maintain a 3.1 GPA, completed 30 credits toward their degree with 15 of those completed at Quincy College, completed 12 credits in their specific area of study, and gain pre-approval by the internship instructor.

Do your credits transfer to other institutions?
Yes. Quincy College credits are fully transferable and accredited. We have students transferring to both State and private institutions within and outside Massachusetts. Please note that transfer decisions are made by the accepting institution.

What other classes should I take outside CJ?
Criminal Justice degrees are complimented by degrees or concentrations from many other areas. If you are more interested in the human side of CJ, courses in Human Services or Sociology may benefit you. If you are interested in the crime profiling/CSI side of criminal justice, Psychology or forensic based courses may be to your liking. If you are interested in the legal aspects of the discipline, Paralegal or criminal law may be of more use. We encourage students to develop their specific interest beyond the general degree so they can focus their training on the careers they are most likely to pursue.
