Criminal Justice


The Criminal Justice program at the The University of Montana - Missoula, and Montana State University - Northern prepares students for employment in public and private criminal justice agencies, law enforcement agencies, as well as correctional, probation, and parole organizations. After earning a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, students may also choose to pursue graduate school, studying sociology, criminal justice, or law.

Associate of Arts/Associate of Science Degree


Suggested course of study for a transfer to The University of Montana - Missoula:


First Year


First Year Total: 30

Second Year


Second Year Total: 30-32

Total Credits: 60-62


1 Suggested electives include PSYX 100 , PSYX 150 , PSYX 240  or SOCI 260 .
2 Although only CHMY 280  will directly work as a transfer course, CHMY 282  would also prepare the student for a 400-level course at The University of Montana.
3 For an AA degree.
4 For a BS degree.

*Indicates prerequisite and/or corequisite needed. Check course description.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students can usually earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for many transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements  for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
