Our Master's in Criminal Justice program is designed for college graduates with a strong interest in criminal justice and the ambition to enhance their management skills.
This program helps students:

However, students without prior undergraduate course work in criminology (a course in deviance or juvenile delinquency can be substituted) will be required to take such a course before enrolling in the graduate course in criminology. Successful completion of an undergraduate course in statistics or social research is also required before enrolling in the graduate research methods course.
