The associate program in criminal justice introduces students to the basics of the field, such as police procedures, the legal system, and criminal psychology. These programs are useful for public service roles that require some college coursework, such as local police officer, firefighter, or human services assistant. Bachelor's degrees provide a more in-depth look at the many aspects of criminal justice, like criminal justice ethics, communication, and criminal law. Master's programs usually focus in a particular area of criminal justice, such as crime scene investigation, forensic psychology, or cybercrime. Bachelor's and master's graduates may qualify for more high-level positions, such as federal law enforcement officer, federal agent, or forensic psychologist.
