Tennessee Transfer Pathway (AS), Criminal Justice


The Criminal Justice Program at Roane State reflects the growing academic emphasis of the discipline. The degree program is designed to provide an academic foundation for those seeking a professional degree from a four-year institution.

Besides this AS transfer program, additional programs in Criminal Justice are offered:

A number of the careers listed under work settings require four-year or advanced degrees; thus, it is important that each student consult in the early stages of the enrollment process with the program director concerning career and academic goals.

Why Start at Roane State?

Coming to Roane State for two years and then transferring is one of the most affordable ways to earn your bachelor’s degree.

Plus, you will have small classes, which is especially beneficial for tough subjects students usually take in their freshman or sophomore years. At a big university, you may have 100 students in your freshman biology class. At Roane State, you will have about 20 students in your freshman biology class, and your professor will know you on a first-name basis.

Roane State also offers many of the student experiences you get at four-year schools, including athletics, clubs, intramurals, theatre, music (join concert choir, Celebration Singers, jazz band, or our bluegrass band), lectures by leading scholars and speakers, movie nights, festivals, art shows, and opportunities to study abroad.
