Would you like to work in the criminal justice arena as a corrections officer? These people usually work in a prison or another law enforcement facility. They may inspect cells and other areas, monitor prisoners, and work with or even supervise other employees. At corrections schools in Minnesota, coursework combines elements of criminal justice, communication, ethics, psychology, and behavior studies. Some programs also include contemporary issues in criminal justice, such as juvenile delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse, and domestic violence. Others focus more on criminal behavior and rehabilitation, and may also require a fair amount of supervised fieldwork before graduation.
At Kaplan University, we offer over 180 degree and certificate programs.
