Description:

See the state issued Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) template for any further clarification regarding program requirements.

The Administration of Justice Associate in Science for Transfer degree is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. California Community College students who are awarded an ADT are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses. Current and prospective community college students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop an educational plan that best meets their goals and needs.

Students will have to fulfill the following requirements to earn this degree.

  1. Completion of 60 semester units that are eligible for transfer to the California State University, including both of the following:

    a) The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education-Breadth requirements; and

    b) A minimum of 18 semester units as required for the Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer Major.

  2. Obtainment of an overall minimum grade point average of 2.0.
  3. Earn a grade of C or better in all courses required for the Associate in Science in Administration of Justice for Transfer Major.

Program Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  1. Analyze relationships and interactions between citizens and the criminal justice system in a social and cultural context and develop a communication style consistent with legal requirements that encompass cultural understanding;
  2. evaluate situations and incidents to determine if a criminal law has been violated, and develop and implement an appropriate intervention strategy consistent with constitutional protections and safeguards;
  3. evaluate and analyze a crime scene to ensure the proper recognition, identification, collection, preservation, and scientific analysis of physical evidence; and
  4. examine the pre-trial, trial, and post-trial elements of the criminal justice system to ensure constitutional and statutory requirements are maintained consistent with public safety standards.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.
