Restorative Justice the Focus of Marygrove’s New Online Undergrad Program
DETROIT, MI, July 26, 2016—Marygrove College announced today its new online Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice degree, a program with a restorative-justice emphasis designed for current or aspiring criminal justice professionals. The program is currently accepting applications for the fall semester, which begins September 6, 2016.
“In this time of crisis, where there is distrust between law enforcement and the community,” said Marygrove College Provost Dr. Sally Welch, “our institution is prepared to help bring about peace and reconciliation through its online Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice based on Restorative Justice principles.”
Restorative Justice is a victim-centered response to crime that views criminal behavior not as a violation against the state, but one against people and relationships. As a result, those who practice restorative justice respond to crime by transforming the traditional relationship between communities and government, giving all stakeholders—both the victim and perpetrator—the opportunity to identify and take steps to repair harm.
Marygrove College’s Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice is offered completely online and has been designed for those interested in law enforcement, corrections, parole, probation, fire science, and non-profit careers.
