Distance Learning & Online Justice Administration Degree Programs

Graduates from a degree in justice administration may be planning to work within court systems as court reporters, county or district clerks, judge's assistants or as paralegals or law enforcement officers or agents. The justice administration degree is often used as a foundation for others choosing to continue on with their education to pursue careers as attorneys, judges, justice of the peace, in management positions within large court systems. Students wishing to pursue management positions in private security and law enforcement agencies or in corrections may also choose to start their educational career with a degree in justice administration.

Justice administration degrees are typically offered at either an associate or bachelor level, with students then specializing and narrowing the field of study when proceeding to master or higher level programs. Some justice administration degrees are offered online to make learning convenient for the student and allowing working adults to continue with employment while earning a degree. Students will become familiar with relevant and current issues and practices in legal systems and will even examine systems used in other countries. Analysis and logical and detailed examination of materials will be stressed throughout the course of study.

Classes in the justice administration degree will include management and leadership courses, effective communication and decision making strategies, criminal investigation and procedures, court systems and court proceedings, criminal and civil court hearings, legal and ethical issues in presenting evidence and giving testimony as well as finance and basic accounting principles. Students will be able to choose courses that are most appropriate for their continued education or career needs. Legal terminology and document preparation is usually a course that is of interest to most students, but will be a definite requirement for those wishing to continue on as lawyers, judges or paralegals.
