The format is delivered via a program called Blackboard which allows the students to interact via discussion boards, chat rooms and online assignments. In addition, professors produce lectures through video and also offer instructional videos. 

Studies have shown that the more incarcerated prisoners are educated and treated humanely, the lower the rates if recidivism. By becoming educated and skilled in criminal justice corrections, you can help with this important aspect of healing prisoners.
