Law & Justice Certificates

A certificate in law and justice can typically be completed in one year and will focus on providing the student with a broad understanding of the law at work and in society.  Certificate programs are designed to help students develop the necessary skills to obtain entry level positions such as a crime scene technician. A certificate in law and justice will likely provide courses in criminology, legal foundations, and criminal psychology. The Pennsylvania State University Dubois campus allows students to earn a certificate in crime, law, and justice with options to specialize in the areas of Spanish language and/or addictions prevention and counseling. Kaplan University offers a crime scene technician certificate program to instruct students on proper investigation procedures.

A certificate in law and justice is right for you if you are looking to jump start a career in one of the various aspects of the legal system without the time and expense of a more formal degree program.  Research the education requirements for specific law and justice field careers at our law and justice career center page.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for those working as crime scene technicians is expected to grow at a pace of twenty percent over the next decade.  Those who have completed certificate programs in this field will likely be employed by local or state government agencies.
