Vol State and TSU Team Up for Criminal Justice

Submitted on May 11, 2011 at 8:42 AM

Volunteer State Community College and Tennessee State University have a new criminal justice program that gives students the opportunity to get a degree at Vol State and then complete coursework for a TSU bachelor's degree- all on the Vol State campus in Gallatin. The degree program kicks-off in the fall semester.

The Criminal Justice program is called two plus two, because the entire two years worth of Vol State classes will apply to the TSU degree, if students take the specified coursework. Counselors can give students all of the course requirements ahead of time and help students stay on track. Students who complete the program will receive an Associate of Science Degree with an emphasis in Criminal Justice from Vol State and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from TSU.

Criminal Justice is a growing career field with opportunities in law enforcement, investigations, probation/parole, law and corrections. For more information contact D. Lynette Perry by e-mail at dperry2@tnstate.edu or by phone at 615-230-3229.
