VIDEO: Gateway to a Recession-Proof Profession
A joint program with John Jay College prepares BMCC students for careers in criminal justice.
This joint degree program allows students to first complete the A.A. degree in Criminal Justice at BMCC. Upon graduation, participating students will then transfer seamlessly to John Jay where they will pursue a bachelor's degree and take the first step towards an exciting and rewarding profession.
The BMCC part of the degree is weighted toward Liberal Arts, with five courses in criminal justice--Introduction to Criminal Justice, Criminology, Police Work, Corrections and Substantive Criminal Law. Structuring the course this way allows students to decide whether to continue on the criminal justice track. If not, these 60 completed credits can be readily applied to other areas.
