Becoming an advocate in the criminal justice system will give you the opportunity – and the responsibility – to explore ways to help those involved with criminal activity, as well as the victims of criminal activity or abuse.

You will be the first point of contact offering information, support, and advocacy on behalf of your clients. Working within the criminal justice system, you’ll play a key role in preventing crime, advising offenders, and supporting victims.

In this unique major within Criminal Justice, you will explore victims within and affected by the criminal justice system. You will analyze and evaluate the processes and systems designed to help rehabilitate female and child offenders. You’ll learn methods to protect women and their families who are the victims of abuse and criminal activity.

  • Research the most effective safety protocols and community social services.
  • Assist clients with court statements and appearances.
  • Provide supervision, education and emotional support.
  • Evaluate real-life cases, and determine and apply best practices.
