Administration of Justice

Have you ever considered a career in law enforcement? It’s a rewarding way to serve your community while putting your communication and people skills to good use.

At West Hills College Coalinga we have several administration of justice associate degrees to choose from including an Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree in Administration of Justice and an Administration of Justice Correctional Science degree. 

Once completed, you’ll have a full understanding of the legal process of the criminal justice system, as well as laws at the local, state and federal levels, and the ability to write documents used in the criminal justice system.

Students who complete our AS-T degree program are guaranteed admission into the CSU system. Students transferring to a CSU institution will be required to complete 60 units after transfer to earn a Bachelor’s degree.
