Criminal Justice - MS in Human Services

Return to: MS in Human Services  

This specialization is designed for professionals involved in all aspects of public safety, including law enforcement and rehabilitation. Students examine the factors that contribute to criminal behavior, such as urban decay, substance abuse, and poverty. They 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. Through this coursework, students gain a greater insight into the problems facing the criminal justice system and how they can begin to address these challenges.
