Why choose this field of study?

Correctional Rehabilitation is a complex process involving the restoration of appropriate behavior, norms, and patterns in people who have committed criminal acts or who show tendencies toward actions with a high degree of social harm. Do you want to obtain the education that will help you become a professional in the field of correctional rehabilitation? Do you want to have a real impact on the interactions in rehabilitation institutions and take an active part in the social readaptation of people from the most difficult, dysfunctional backgrounds? Do you feel confident in your psychological skills to help socially maladjusted people? Are you unafraid of the challenges associated with working in prisons, the judiciary, and crime prevention? If so, Correctional Rehabilitation (undergraduate) at the University of Economics and Human Sciences in Warsaw is the program for you!

During your studies, you will delve into key topics from various social sciences, such as psychology (e.g., social, educational, psychopathology), anthropology, criminology, and law (e.g., criminal, custodial, family). You will also acquire in-depth knowledge of rehabilitation systems in Poland and around the world and become familiar with the latest methods and rehabilitation programs. What is particularly important, you will complete exciting internships, numerous workshops, and competency training that will prepare you for future employment in a practical way. During your studies, you will complete an additional module to obtain teaching credentials (94 hours), which will allow you to obtain full qualifications to work as a teacher in the field of correctional rehabilitation education. These qualifications are required to work as an educator, tutor, or teacher in all rehabilitation and penitentiary institutions.

Correctional Rehabilitation with Teaching Credentials – what sets us apart:

  • You will become fully qualified to be a practicing teacher in the field of correctional rehabilitation education.
  • During practical courses, you will acquire the psychological competencies necessary for future work with rehabilitees.
  • You will learn from leading academics and long-time practitioners in the field of correctional rehabilitation.
  • Instead of writing a traditional bachelor’s thesis, you will complete an original social project on correctional rehabilitation.
  • You will be able to complete professional internships in institutions and centers with highly effective rehabilitation programs.
  • Study in an international community! (UEHS was recognized as the most internationalized university in Poland by the Perspektywy University Ranking).

Correctional Rehabilitation – what can you do after graduation?

As a graduate of the bachelor’s degree program in Correctional Rehabilitation at the University of Economics and Human Sciences, you will be equipped with the knowledge and social competencies to work in:

  • prisons (e.g., as a prison educator) and the judiciary (e.g., as a probation officer, mediator, or expert witness)
  • institutions for rehabilitation and crime prevention
  • non-governmental organizations and foundations dealing with social pathology prevention, outreach, social assistance
  • correctional institutions and special education centers
  • juvenile shelters, daycare centers, youth educational centers, or youth sociotherapy centers

This kind of specialized education will be a great asset if you are planning a career in the uniformed services (e.g., Prison Service, Police, Municipal Police). You can also set up your own business, running a private facility in the field of correctional rehabilitation and prevention of social pathologies.

This program
is for you if:

You are an empathetic and communicative person, and at the same time, courageous, determined, patient, and resistant to stress.

You possess exceptional social sensitivity and feel that working with the most “difficult” people is your calling.

You want to pursue a profession whose meaning is to help excluded individuals who have turned to crime, or those at risk of delinquency.
