Know what’s usually missing from those cool cop and crime scene shows? What the victim has to deal with. In reality, the experience of crime victims with their offenders, law enforcement, and the courts is an important part of our criminal justice system.

Our Victimology certificate prepares you for a professional career in victim advocacy. This specialized area of study includes crisis intervention, community services, victim rights, and other areas that relate to victimology. Our certificate is also useful for police officers, firefighters, counselors, social workers, probation officers, and others who deal with victims.
