About the Program

At Tabor, we want to enhance your understanding and skills in criminal justice, as well as advance your career opportunities.

The Criminology and Restorative Justice Program design is responsive to the evolving criminal justice system in America. Students will gain understanding of the dynamic and frequently reactive relationship between the modern justice system, greater society and the individual.

The educational experience allows students to explore human behavior, system breakdowns, civil unrest, legal issues, communication, and countered with refreshing alternatives to restorative, peace-infused, and faith-based solutions.  You will be personally challenged and enriched through this 36-hour online program.
