Although this program is designed for transfer purposes, students who complete an associate of arts in criminal justice could gain employment in positions such as community corrections employee, private security officer, juvenile corrections officer and courtroom personnel. Students who continue on to complete a bachelor’s degree may obtain employment with federal law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service or state agencies such as the Ohio Parole Authority.
