“Restorative Justice” the Focus of Marygrove’s Online Master’s Program in Criminal Justice

DETROIT, Sept. 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marygrove College announced today its new Master of Arts in Criminal Justice degree, an online, 30-credit program with a restorative-justice emphasis designed for current or aspiring criminal justice professionals. The program is currently accepting applications for the fall semester. Classes begin October 31.

“Our online program is not only competitively priced and convenient for adults and working professionals,” said Marygrove College Interim Provost Dr. Sally Welch. “It is also unique in that it emphasizes restorative justice.”

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 Master of Arts in Criminal Justice is offered completely online and has been designed for those interested in law enforcement, corrections, parole, probation, fire science, educational leadership and non-profit careers.
