Criminal Justice Administration
Master of Science

As you think about advancing in your criminal justice career, you may realize that a master's degree would help you move up through the ranks of your agency. In addition to giving you the skills and credentials needed for promotion, this degree is also designed to meet the theoretical and analytical needs of those who want to pursue doctoral or law studies.

The Criminal Justice Administration MS curriculum helps you gain valuable knowledge through a set of core courses in areas such as legal issues and the nature of crime; enhance your skills through criminal justice research methods and criminal justice evaluation; and focus on administration through leadership, budgeting, and personnel management courses. You will then use what you have learned as you complete a culminating experience—either a thesis or graduate topic and comprehensive critique/exam experience.
