"The Criminal Justice A.A.S. degree prepares you for a career in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Graduates can, after meeting civil service requirements, enter law enforcement, investigation, crime prevention and corrections on the federal, state and local level. Opportunities for employment in private organizations are also available.
Some graduates continue their education in pursuit of bachelor's degree and beyond, while others enter the workforce immediately following completion of the A.A.S. degree. The college has several well-established articulation agreements for this program.
The Hudson Valley Criminal Justice program is annually ranked by Community College Week as one of the most productive education programs of its kind in the country. In a 2015 report, Hudson Valley ranked 12th nationally among all two-year colleges in the number of criminal justice associate degrees granted."
