Looking for a career in criminal justice? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place.
Hocking College is excited to announce a new partnership with the University of Cincinnati’s Criminal Justice program, which is not only nationally ranked, but also ranked number one in the state of Ohio.
Hocking College offers an Associate’s degree in criminal justice, allowing students to select a concentration in either corrections or law enforcement. Students in law enforcement will have the option of taking the Ohio Peace Officer Basic Academy (POB) during their last semester at Hocking College, which will allow them to graduate with both an Associate’s degree in criminal justice and their Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA) certification*.
This partnership allows students in the criminal justice program to complete their Associate’s degree in either concentration (corrections or law enforcement) during their first 2 years at Hocking College, then continue on to the University of Cincinnati to earn their Bachelor’s degree within another 2 years. Students who choose this route will be able to save both time and money.
Because UC offers an online Bachelor’s degree program in criminal justice, students are able to earn their degree remotely. This offers more flexibility for those students who wish to enter the workforce upon graduation from Hocking College, all while continuing to earn a Bachelor’s degree.
