The Graduate Certificate in Juvenile Justice Leadership is designed to provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of criminal justice, public administration, and social work.
The juvenile justice system, long understaffed, is facing the continuing problem of increased juvenile crime, high levels of juvenile drug and substance abuse, and debatable programs to rehabilitate delinquent children. Juvenile Justice Leadership is one of the fastest growing career fields in Criminal Justice.
