From homelessness to substance abuse to poverty, a variety of factors contribute to criminal behavior in modern society. In the Criminal Justice specialization, you will explore both traditional and contemporary intervention and rehabilitation approaches for offenders as well as their victims. By examining the factors that contribute to criminal behavior, you can identify the key challenges facing the criminal justice system today—and what you as a human services professional can do to help address these problems.

This specialization can prepare you to lead programs within prisons, probation, and parole programs. Other career opportunities include policy and planning in the Bureau of Prisons, Department of Justice, or halfway and rehabilitation programs.
