The Criminal Justice A.S. program is designed to prepare students to transfer into a Criminal Justice bachelor's degree program. The program is writing and research intensive and parallels the first two years of a four-year Criminal Justice program.

This is the primary program for students who plan to complete a rigorous two-year study in Criminal Justice at Hudson Valley and then continue their education at the baccalaureate level and beyond.

The college also offers a Criminal Justice A.A.S. program. Contact the department to speak with an advisor about which degree program is right for you.

This program is offered through the Business and Criminal Justice Department.
