The field of Corrections holds vast job opportunities and also offers job security in many different areas of the government.  Our goal is to train and educate students for entry-level positions in the Corrections field. This concentration prepares students for immediate employment in state and private correctional facilities, or as Legal Assistants working in Criminal Law or with a Public Defender.

The Criminal Corrections concentration focuses on both the theoretical and practical skills necessary to succeed in the challenging area of Corrections. Coursework looks at many aspects in the field of Corrections, including: a history of Corrections, Community Corrections, juveniles and women in the correctional setting, crime and delinquency, and a Correctional Institutions class where students will have the opportunity to visit local correctional facilities in order to obtain a first person sense of how the correctional facility operates.

 

The Criminal Corrections Concentration will be attached to the Associate of Applied Business in Legal Assistant degree that we currently offer.  Students will co-jointly study the law while learning about how the law is affected (and affects) the Justice System, specifically the field of Corrections.
