If you are a criminal justice professional, you know the landscape: Increasing levels of crime, social problems born of drug use, explosion of offenders in courts and correctional settings, plus violence in neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools that paralyzes entire communities.
Do you want to develop the leadership skills to navigate this landscape?
Ball State University’s graduate certificate in criminal justice and criminology features a sequence of courses that concentrate on the philosophy of justice, interpersonal skills, and administrative skills.
Whether you work in law enforcement, corrections, or victim advocacy, you’ll need these skills to advance professionally. Likewise, Ball State graduate students who are adding elective courses outside of their home disciplines, particularly sociology students, will find relevant course work in this certificate.
