As a student, you’ll learn from seasoned professionals who deliver an evolving set of experiences to prepare you for life after graduation. You learn to assess situations through verbal and non-verbal communication cues and develop the skills to positively react to fast-paced and ever-changing scenarios. Along the way, you’ll develop relevant, real-world knowledge from courses in criminal law, juvenile justice, due process and ethics.
