Midland College offers two associate degrees and a certificate in Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement. The Associate of Science (AS) - Criminal Justice degree is designed to provide courses at the freshman and sophomore levels for students pursuing a baccalaureate degree with a major or minor in criminal justice. The Associate of Applied Science (AAS)-Law Enforcement degree provides education and training for developing a marketable skill in law enforcement and may qualify the graduate for admission into a Bachelor of Applied Technology or Bachelor of Applied Science program at certain colleges or universities. A Law Enforcement Certificate is offered for individuals who need to document certain course work.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has designated five courses in the Criminal Justice Field of Study (CJFOS). These courses comprise a core of courses that are guaranteed to transfer to upper-level institutions and apply towards a baccalaureate degree in criminal justice.
