This program leads to careers supporting innovations in offender accountability and rehabilitation, meeting the needs of victims, and supporting community efforts to promote safety, security, and conflict resolution. The key features of program: professional development, resources, and contacts through on-campus organizations such as the ?justice society?; an active internship program with placements in social, human service, and justice agencies; and award-winning faculty members who contribute to the discipline as researchers, consultants, practitioners and national leaders. In this program, students will earn a Sociology major with a concentration in Social and Criminal Justice. In addition to core Sociology courses, their concentration will include a six-credit internship and the following required courses: Introduction to Social and Criminal Justice, Criminology, Community Corrections and Alternative Sentencing, Inequalities and Justice Processes: Race, Class and Gender, Internship in Social and Criminal Justice, and Juvenile Delinquency. The Social and Criminal Justice program emphasizes community-based justice and is designed to avoid duplication of other criminal justice programs in Michigan. Some graduates choose to pursue advanced professional studies. Others begin entry-level careers in probation, parole, alternative sentencing and diversion programs, day-treatment, community mediation, and social and human services. Graduates will find career opportunities in a variety of areas. Some of these may require additional education: community corrections officer, juvenile court worker, prison counselor, probation and parole officer, victim advocate, and youth case worker. Many graduates interested in law enforcement, having obtained critical-thinking and problem-solving skills and an understanding of the context in which police work takes place, go on to police academies.
