Earn Your Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice Online

Begin your education journey in criminal justice studies with an online Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice from American Military University (AMU). This online program empowers you with solid understanding about legal issues, law enforcement objectives, administrative functions, and the impact of terrorism.

The program is taught by faculty with real-world experience in local, state, and federal government; public safety agencies; the military; and corrections. You will learn amongst student peers, many sharing their experience from law enforcement, public safety, and homeland security roles.

The AA in Criminal Justice provides valuable skills and techniques commonly employed in many criminal justice and related organizations. This program also serves as a foundation for AMU’s Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Arts degrees in Criminal Justice.

AMU’s programs are online with 24/7 access and no set login times. At AMU, there are no entrance exams and classes start every month, so you can begin quickly and control your schedule. Ask us about transfer credit opportunities to help you save time and money in completing your degree.
