Criminal Justice

Our program offers three graduate-level Criminal Justice degrees. The M.A. prepares graduates for positions of responsibility in the criminal justice system, facilitates the professional and intellectual development of in-service students, and provides foundation work for careers in research or teaching. The M.S. is offered online and provides students with advanced academic training, supervisory and administrative proficiency, and the methodological skills necessary to understand research and new developments in criminal justice. The Ph.D. program develops scholars in the fields of criminology and criminal justice.
