Offered Only at Main Campus

The 21-month (seven-term) Criminal Justice program prepares students for careers in the area of public safety. The program focuses on major issues concerning criminal justice as a profession. The program director and instructors have the responsibility to the community and the public to carefully screen and advise those persons choosing criminal justice as a profession.

All applicants to this program will undergo a criminal background check. This program is closed to all applicants with a felony record. It would be unfair for Indian Hills to allow a student to complete the entire criminal justice program only to be refused employment because of a felony or serious misdemeanor conviction. This program also demands completion of a firearms qualification course. Federal law prohibits individuals convicted of domestic abuse from possessing a firearm. Students enrolled in this program will experience unique pre-employment qualifications, which may include passing extensive criminal and character background checks, physical requirements, polygraph testing, oral boards, drug screening and/or other requirements pertinent to current hiring practices.

Students will enter this major at the beginning of the Fall term. The following sequence of courses is based upon a Fall entry. To enroll, complete an application and attend any required academic orientation and information session. Students meeting all program and graduation requirements receive an Associate of Applied Science degree.
