Criminal Justice Administration

The Criminal Justice program at Mt. Hood Community College includes the study of laws, procedures, institutions, and policies involved before, during, and after a crime occurs. In the U.S., the criminal justice system basically breaks down into three areas: law enforcement, the court system, and corrections. Some jobs in the field require an associate degree or higher, and some may need a four-year degree.
