									           Criminal Justice
                          2+2 Bachelor’s Degree Program*

Columbia State Community College and Tennessee State University Partnership
Columbia State and Tennessee State University (TSU) have teamed up to provide
Associate’s Degree students the opportunity to complete the TSU Criminal Justice
Bachelor’s Degree directly from Columbia State campus in Columbia, TN rather than on
the TSU campus in Nashville, TN. In cooperation with the Tennessee Board of Regents,
students complete the General Transfer A.S. (or A.A.) Degree with a Criminal Justice
emphasis through Columbia State and then “transfer” to TSU for completion of the B.S. (or
B.A.) Degree (see reverse side for program requirements).

Quality Education and Student Advisement
By offering all courses through Columbia State, students can maintain their local
residences, continue to work, and avoid the anxiety and hassle of relocation. TSU provides
the same high value, affordable, educational experience and main campus quality
instruction in traditional classroom, online, and hybrid formats. In addition, students receive
individual assistance and advisement via a TSU Off-Campus Program Coordinator and Off-
Campus Counselor, who strive to ensure the students enjoy all of the benefits of the TSU
Criminal Justice Program, but from a distance.

2011 Cohort Now Forming
A cohort for Fall 2011 is now forming - contact one of the 2+2 Program representatives
