Review the Degree Plan:

“The BAAS in Criminal Justice was created for the law enforcement community. We are mindful that Texas Peace Officers have competencies, as demonstrated through their Basic Peace Officer license, to bypass lower-level division courses. Thus, any Texas peace officer can enter the program and have an accelerated start in earning their bachelor degree.”

Dr. Claudia San Miguel, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences.
