Program Description:

Corrections Leadership is a rapidly growing area of criminal justice. Private, state and federal agencies are seeking qualified managers and leaders to meet the changing needs of the twenty-first century. Leaders of correctional facilities and programs should be prepared to meet the challenges of changing policies and effectively deal with the management of budgets, grants, cooperative agreements and other inter-governmental projects. The Graduate Certificate in Corrections Leadership is designed to address these needs, while providing a theoretical and practical knowledge base for correctional practitioners in the areas of criminal justice, public administration and social work.
