Associate of Science Total Credits: 60
Must have a grade of “C” or higher in all course.
1 Fine Arts options: ARTS, MUSC, THEA
2 First time students with less than 24 prior credits (either through transfer or previously taken at SLCC) are recommended to take SFSE 1003 Seminar in First-year Student Experience, especially if intending to transfer to a baccalaureate institution. Students with 24+ credits and students not intending to transfer to a 4-year program should select an appropriate Elective in place of SFSE 1003.
3Humanities options: HIST, 2XXX ENGL (except ENGL 2045 and 2070), or CMCN (except CMCN 1170, 1270, and 2145)
4 Choose from BIOL, CHEM, GEOL, PHSC, PHYS. Most science lecture courses have an associated lab course, which may or may not be required for specific transfer programs but is not required for completion of the AS in Criminal Justice at SLCC - students should, with adviser, check needs and requirements of intended Criminal Justice pathways for appropriate decision concerning labs (i.e. students desiring a career in Forensics). Students planning to continue their education at a baccalaureate institution are encouraged to complete courses in the same science discipline (e.g. 2 BIOL in sequence or 2 CHEM in sequence).
5 Electives may be chosen from Arts & Humanities (ARTS, MUSC, THEA, CMCN, HIST, ENGL literature), Social Sciences (PSYC, SOCI, GEOG, POLI, ECON), English (ENGL lit or 2000 level courses), MCIS, ACCT, GBUS, SPCH, FREN or SPAN. Students should work with their adviser to determine the best elective courses for their individual course of study and to maximize transferability.
6 The total AS Degree credits must be 60, but if optional labs are taken or if student takes a 4-Credit Foreign language as elective the total number may exceed 60. If enrollment in labs and/or combination of one (1)-credit options adds up to 3 credits then one less elective may be taken so long as the total number of credits equals 60.
