Correctional Administration

The Correctional Administration concentration is designed for experienced correctional professionals who wish to further their careers by completing a program of study designed to increase their skills in management, organizational relations, and communication; their knowledge of the contexts within which correctional administration fits; their understanding of workplace issues that can affect productivity; and their ability to manage diversity in the workforce. In most cases, candidates for this degree program will be active duty or retired law enforcement or correctional officers at the municipal, county, or state levels, though military police and, in certain circumstances, those whose experience is in private security are eligible as well.
