Education Center to Host Careers in Criminal Justice Sessions

Ellsworth -

Mary Louis Davitt, Prof. Legal Technology, UMA

ELLSWORTH – People interested in preparing for careers in law enforcement, detection and forensics are invited to participate in an interactive videoconference session at the Higher Education Center from 4-5pm on Monday, June 21. The session will feature faculty from the Justice Studies program at the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA). Offering the Bachelor of Science, the Associate of Science and certificates, UMA’s Justice Studies program prepares students for career opportunities in border patrol, paralegal positions–public and private, probation–state and federal, and risk management.

“Justice Studies offers a variety of programs–a paralegal certificate, an advocacy minor, a criminal justice concentration as well as a community policing and a forensics certificate,” said Mary Louis Davitt, Professor of Legal Technology. “All required courses are available at a distance; most are available online. We believe that while our online offerings challenge students and faculty, they also enhance the academic and public discussion of important and timely topics throughout the state.”
