Criminal Justice Pathway
These represent sample pathways toward an Associate of Applied Science in or an Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice at NC State. CRMJ is designed for students immediately wishing to work upon graduation, while AACJ is designed for those seeking direct transfer toward a bachelor’s degree.

Positions are also available in the private industry where security and loss prevention are paramount. Some graduates will continue to pursue a bachelor’s degree, which expands the employment market to include state and federal agencies. Where noted, these courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public Ohio college under the Ohio Transfer 36 (general education) and/or Transfer Assurance Guide. This is just a sample.
