PhD in Human and Social Services - Criminal Justice

Walden University

Several factors contribute to criminal behavior in modern society, from homelessness to substance abuse to poverty. In the Criminal Justice specialization, you will explore traditional and contemporary intervention and rehabilitation approaches for both offenders and victims. By examining the factors that contribute to criminal behavior, you can identify the key challenges facing the criminal justice system today—and what you as a human services professional can do to help address these problems. This program leads to a dissertation that will add to the body of knowledge in the field of criminal justice.

This specialization can prepare you to lead programs within prisons, and probation and parole programs. Other career opportunities include policy and planning in the Bureau of Prisons, the Department of Justice, or halfway and rehabilitation programs.

Note on Licensure: The PhD in Human and Social Services program, including its specializations, is not designed to lead to professional licensure including licensure as a professional therapist, counselor, social worker, or psychologist.
