Criminal Justice

Mission Statement

Cape Cod Community College’s Criminal Justice Program is committed to excellence in teaching and learning. The program offers access to all students interested in attaining an A.S. in Criminal Justice. The program offers an environment where the ideas and contributions of all students are respected. As the only public institution offering a Criminal Justice degree on Cape Cod, we have created a student-centered learning community that prepares students for a variety of professional opportunities in the various criminal justice career fields. The Criminal Justice Program provides opportunities for employment, as well as transfer to professional baccalaureate programs.

The purpose of the Criminal Justice Program at Cape Cod Community College is to prepare students whose career plans include probation, corrections, law enforcement, or employment in the court system. We do this by providing a broad understanding of the criminal justice system and a fundamental knowledge of the social and behavioral sciences, particularly as they apply to the field of criminal justice. We prepare students for employment and for transfer to professional baccalaureate programs.
