The majority of Justice Management students work full-time in justice-related careers such as parole and probation, juvenile detention, alternatives to incarceration programs, corrections, court administration, law enforcement, child protection services, counseling, law practice, and the judiciary. Positions range from front-line staff to supervisors to directors. Others work in education or in the private sector. A small but growing percentage are recent university graduates seeking a career in justice.
A key aspect of the Justice Management program is the delivery of its courses online. The online aspect is essential as students reside all over the country. The typical Justice Management student requires a flexible program that can accommodate busy professional work schedules. As the program grew, the student base broadened to include those in adult justice, corrections, law enforcement, court administration, education, counseling, legal practice, the judiciary, and students who just recently completed bachelor’s degrees.
While students residing in the Reno area may take designated UNR courses from other departments (as set forth in the Justice Management curriculum catalog ), most choose to take the Justice Management online courses to complete their degrees.
Another important aspect of the Justice Management program is the offering of both a thesis and a non-thesis option. The thesis option allows students to produce an academic research study in conjunction with earning their degree, and the non-thesis option allows students to produce a professional paper that, while based in theory, encompasses an application approach and may be directly related to the improvement of some aspect of the justice system.
