Women's Leadership

The demand for women who are criminal justice professionals has never been higher. Women continue to be dramatically underrepresented in the criminal justice field, and recruiters are actively seeking women with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

As a criminal justice major or minor at Cedar Crest, you will learn about the challenges faced by women in this field, preparing you more fully for a future leadership role in the criminal justice system.

Cedar Crest College has always focused on the development of women leaders, and we are particularly proud of the leadership skills of our criminal justice graduates.

Employers locally and nationally hold our graduates in high esteem for their leadership abilities, knowledge, integrity, ethics, and behavioral-based knowledge.

Our graduates have gone on to work in the following fields:

  • Adult Probation
  • Mental Health referral and evaluation
  • Juvenile probation
  • Child welfare services
  • At-risk youth development
  • Juvenile detention
  • Pre-trial services
