Earn your bachelor of science degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice and transfer credits from AWC

ASU and Arizona Western College have created a partnership to allow transfer students the opportunity to complete their B.S. degree in criminology and criminal justice  and seamlessly transfer community college credits. You will be joining one of the top schools in the nation as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. We have established relationships with agencies across the state giving you a range of opportunities to network and gain hands-on experience through internships. 

ASU's program in criminology and criminal justice is rooted in the study of the causes of crime and systemic responses to it. The core of our program focuses on the theories of criminality and evidence-based best practices for responding to crime through the lenses of three inter-related structures--policing, courts and corrections--which collectively comprise the criminal justice system. 

All of our lower-division courses are articulated with Arizona community colleges, making it easy for students to transfer credits from Arizona Western College. Thus, transfer students will have substantial progress toward the completion of a degree in this field. Students can take required upper-division ASU courses online to complete their degree with a reduced tuition cost.
