Criminal Justice - PhD in Social Work

Return to: PhD in Social Work  

The specialization in Criminal Justice is designed for professionals involved in all aspects of public safety, including law enforcement and rehabilitation. Students will examine the factors that contribute to criminal behavior, such as urban decay, substance abuse, and poverty. They will explore the use of traditional forms of intervention, such as individual and group psychotherapy, as well as recent developments in intervention, including restorative justice as it relates to both criminals and the victims of crimes. And they will gain a greater insight into the problems facing the criminal justice system and how they can begin to address these challenges.
