College Record 2017-2018

Criminal Justice Systems (ASAP), Bachelor of Science

The criminal justice systems major is designed to serve the educational needs of full-time working adults with previous college experience who wish to complete their baccalaureate degrees. The curriculum consists of 55 credit hours delivered through sequential, integrated courses offered in an accelerated format. The program is delivered in a hybrid model with most courses five weeks in duration and classes meet one evening a week. Students spend additional time outside of class to complete readings, assignments, case studies, online discussions, and group work.

The criminal justice systems curriculum enhances the knowledge and skills of individuals in the criminal justice field by introducing them to the latest theories and principles in law enforcement, corrections, courts, and juvenile justice. The curriculum also brings perspectives from the humanities and social and behavioral sciences to bear on the topics examined. The program culminates in an experience- based research and writing project—developed over a multi-month time frame—that synthesizes learning from previous courses.

Students use their workplace as a living laboratory in which to apply and test classroom learning. Faculty expects students to be active learners who draw on their daily work experience to enrich classroom discussion.

Students enrolled in Keuka’s traditional, semester-long programs are not eligible to enroll, or take courses, in the Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP).
