In addition to the B.S. in Criminal Justice Administration (CJA), MU offers an Associate of Science degree (A.S.) in CJA through two tracks: CJA on-campus (CJA) and CJA Online (CJAO). Students enrolled in the CJAO track may complete their program entirely online. The study of criminal justice administration at Mansfield University provides a systems-based understanding of all the core areas of criminal justice - law enforcement, courts, corrections (including probation and parole), juvenile justice, and criminology. Students enrolled in the CJA track may enroll in the courses offered on-campus or online, if available.

The A.S.CJA students are eligible to join criminal justice organizations and the national honor society, participate in criminal justice tours, and attend special presentations. Many two-year students develop the academic skills and perseverance to transfer to the baccalaureate program and graduate with no loss of credits.

  • Delineate the structure and operation of the American Criminal Justice System.
