The modern Corrections System needs people with ability, sensitivity and professional training. The Corrections Option provides training for career opportunities in Corrections and also offers a broad liberal arts education for those students who wish to transfer their earned college credits from the program to four-year academic institutions. To be admitted formally to the program, a student must complete all prerequisite courses (if applicable) and must pass CJS* H101 - Introduction to Criminal Justice with a minimum grade of “C”. Employment opportunities after successful training in the Corrections Option include, but are not limited to, Corrections Officer, Corrections Administration, Probation Officer, Parole Officer and Correctional Counselor.
General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on General Education Core. Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required.
