UCC’s Criminal Justice program prepares students for employment or further study in the law enforcement, corrections, and parole and probation fields.
In addition to the practical, hands-on skills needed for successful careers in the criminal justice field, UCC students learn how to balance their off-duty lives with the challenges of criminal justice professions. They develop strong communication skills, a broad understanding of case law, legal statues, and professional standards, and learn how to succeed in diverse environments.
