Minor in Juvenile Justice

Redirecting paths, unveiling purpose and promoting change.

Start promoting justice and responsibility to a younger crowd — a crowd that is still deciding who they will become. A crowd whose decisions now can impact their life forever. Be a guiding force that points to the path of prevention, intervention, rehabilitation, and change for the better.

Through the William Woods University juvenile justice minor you will gain a better understanding of the criminal justice system through the lens of minors, adolescents and families, studying topics in family law, crime victimization, child abuse and neglect, different types of juvenile offenses, enforcement procedures, detention, probation and intervention programs.

The Juvenile Justice minor is a great supplement to a bachelor’s degree in legal studies, social work, English, criminal justice, education, ASL interpretation, and more.
