• Juvenile Corrections

    Certificate

    The Juvenile Corrections Certificate is a one-year program developed in cooperation with the Oregon Youth Authority. Students are prepared to interview for an entry level position in a juvenile correctional facility. The certificate curriculum is challenging and is aimed at providing the skills most desired for working within the juvenile corrections system in Oregon.

    • analyze contemporary issues in the juvenile corrections system in the United States and outline possible responses to those issues,
