Minor in Juvenile Justice
In-Class

The American juvenile justice system is used to handle youth who are convicted of criminal offenses. The system is composed of federal, state, and local jurisdictions and intervenes in delinquent behavior through police, court, and correctional involvement, with the goal of rehabilitation. The juvenile justice system operates from a belief that intervening early in delinquent behavior will deter adolescents from engaging in criminal behavior as adults.

Juvenile Justice is one of the four concentrations to choose from (in addition to Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Security Administration) when you minor in Criminal Justice. The Juvenile Justice focus provides an overview of the criminal justice system and allows the student to specialize in the criminal justice area of juvenile justice.
