Corrections and Offender Rehabilitation Student Story
Danielle Cheers is a State Probation Officer who graduated from UC’s online Criminal Justice Master’s degree program. She has previous experience working as a probation officer for a large private company, but after obtaining a job with the state, she wanted a degree to help her get promoted within that system. Having devoted her life to helping offenders find a better path in their lives, she now plans to work toward her Ph.D. and may potentially take her talents to the federal government.
“I wanted an online degree and was impressed that UC had the #3 Criminal Justice school in the country. I was hooked after speaking with my Enrollment Advisor, Ysaac, who was incredibly helpful and encouraging. With my degree—and the knowledge I gained in my law enforcement and corrections classes—I was able to get a higher position within the state. This is a wonderful program.”
