What will I learn?

The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice program is a post-professional degree designed for professionals already working in the criminal justice system, such as law enforcement officers, prison or jail personnel, probation or parole officers, or court administrators. It is also for individuals who plan to continue on to pursue a Ph.D. after obtaining their masterÕs degree. The curriculum provides students with a broad understanding of the criminal justice system, social control, and the nature of crime while developing the skills necessary to critically assess criminal justice problems and to conduct applied research and evaluation.

Program Structure

The program is designed to accommodate both the working professional and the traditional student. Most of the coursework for this program is offered in the evening. Full-time students may complete the program in one year. Part-time students may complete the program in two or three years.
