The University of Hartford and Middlesex Community College (MxCC) have signed an articulation agreement that will allow smooth transfer of graduates of MxCC to the University of Hartford’s criminal justice program.
MxCC students who earn their associate of science in criminal justice with a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade point average will be admitted to the University’s criminal justice bachelor’s degree program provided they complete the required admission process and space is available in the program. Qualified MxCC graduates will enter the University as juniors.
The University of Hartford’s criminal justice major is an interdisciplinary program of study stressing knowledge of theory and practice. Students in this major can be enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Barney School of Business, or the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions and select a sequence of courses that corresponds to their academic interests and career objectives.
The University of Hartford’s criminal justice program emphasizes a comprehensive understanding of both criminal behavior and the criminal justice system as basic preparation for careers in fields such as corrections, human services, research and planning, and law enforcement. An internship in a criminal justice agency is an integral part of the major and enables students to add practical experience to their academic programs.
